First Salmon Ceremony

Photo credit to Damian Mulinix (again). (can I help it that his photos are better than mine? He is an award winning photojournalist!)

Last Friday- how time flies. Just one year ago I was at the First Salmon Ceremony. This year I didn't bring my camera- having grown weary of the other non-natives chastising me for taking photos. (hey, I had permission)

The weather was perfect. I was warmly greeted by the Chinook Nation and enjoyed the afternoon of drumming, songs, ceremony and conversation. AND I sure am glad Damian was there to capture the memories. You MUST WATCH THIS VIDEO of the event. Thanks Damian.
