Coast Salish Salmon and Orca Culture
June 25 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Join Orca Network and the Penn Cove Water Festival Association for a virtual Orca Action Month event! This event brings together Coast Salish culture and Southern Resident Orca culture, both of which revolve and have evolved around Pacific NW salmon for many generations. We will focus on aspects of the traditional Penn Cove Water Festival such as the Native Opening Ceremony, dance and song, and storytelling. The event will also include presentations highlighting the importance of salmon and orcas to the Coast Salish people and look at the parallels between the culture, diet and sacredness of salmon to the Coast Salish and the Southern Resident orcas.
