One thought on “Salmon migration on display during Saturday’s Kitsap Salmon Tours

  1. It wasn’t until taking a tour in middle school – much like the Kitsap Salmon Tour – that I understood how vital a resource like salmon could be to a tribe of people. For many tribes in the Pacific Northwest, salmon function as both an ecological and cultural keystone species. Indigenous people couldn’t just run down to a local grocery store to pick up dinner; instead, they had to rely on the limited resources in their environment to survive. As a result, readily available food sources were highly prized and became integral parts of societal life. In the Northwest, anadromous fish like salmon often became interwoven into the cultural experience of many tribes and played vital roles in folklore, myth and legend, ritualistic experiences, and tribal identity. The great reverence that many indigenous people show towards animals and plants makes a lot of sense in light of that historical backdrop, and I think it’s great that groups like the Kitsap Salmon Tour help people experience that cultural lens.
