Every year the Yurok tribe holds a salmon festival to celebrate the gifts from the Klamath River in northern California. The historic low number of returning fish meant there was no actual salmon at their last festival. Whether it’s coho, sockeye or pink, salmon are important to a number of tribes in the Pacific Northwest and in Alaska. In this special encore presentation, we’ll talk with folks from different tribes about the cultural significance salmon offers and the potential threats to the natural resource.
(This is an encore show so we will not be taking calls during the hour.)
