Wild Salmon Caravan 2018

It's the 4th annual Wild Salmon Caravan and the dominant run of the sockeye. Come join the caravan and swim them home!

We travel together to honor and celebrate the spirit of wild salmon. Along the way we will share knowledge, wisdom, and values that highlight some of the most sustainable wild salmon fisheries that have persisted since time immemorial.

"For thousands of years, the wild salmon have been our most important Indigenous food, and cultural and ecological keystone species in BC. They are an indicator of the health and integrity of the Indigenous land and food system on which the health and functioning of the entire agri-food system is based. They feed the entire Pacific Temperate Rainforest as well as many species including the bears, the wolves, the eagles, and our families and communities."Dawn Morrison, Wild Salmon Caravan & Working Group on Indigenous Food Sovereignty

The Wild Salmon Caravan is a manifestation of Indigenous food sovereignty. It affirms that inter-tribal relationships are the foundation of Indigenous fisheries and trade knowledge systems. It’s deep purpose is to transform the darkness surrounding the industrial storm that is killing wild salmon.
