About the event

The Upper Columbia Canoe Journey and Salmon Ceremony is a powerful celebration of the deep connection between indigenous peoples of the Upper - Columbia and the land and water. For the tribes who call the Columbia Basin home, the river and salmon are not just resources but crucial parts of our identity, culture, and source of nourishment. This annual journey and ceremony is an opportunity to showcase our stewardship of the river and to honor this ancient relationship, while engaging and educating along the way. The journey is a transformative experience for participants, providing a chance to connect with our traditional territories, learn intergenerational knowledge, and immerse in a natural environment. It's a reminder to all of us that our relationship with the land goes beyond exploitation - it's about respect, care, and responsibility. The Salmon Ceremony and Canoe Journey is a beautiful event that brings people together to pray for the return of salmon, a tradition that has been upheld since the beginning of time.
