This episode will be the first of the Salmon People series where we share the voices of strong Indigenous youth who reflect on their cultural ties to salmon and vocalize why we must take action to save this crucial relative for the ecosystem and culture. Featured in this Episode are two youth from the Lummi Nation, Sadie Olsen and Jayden Phair Williams. You will also hear voices of Indigenous Leaders from the first Salmon People Project gathering held via zoom in March 2021. This Podcast shares salmon values, personal connections held with salmon, how important the salmon is to the environment and Native culture, and concludes with a call to action. We hope that after listening you will join us on a journey of giving a voice back to our sacred ancestor, the salmon. Noutsiam friends and family, Children of the Setting Sun Productions is embarking on a journey to unite tribal nations in order to save our most sacred ancestor, the salmon. The Young and the Indigenous team will follow CSSP to collaborate with Indigenous communities who identify as the Salmon People to create a podcast series with the youth from these tribes. We plan to have a podcast with youth from each tribe who are involved which are: Lummi, Yurok, Umatilla, Shuswap, Swinomish and Yakima Nation. In each episode we hope to encourage the youth to think about their personal or cultural connection to the salmon and what that means to their community as a whole. The larger focus is, “who are we without salmon?” We have to pose this daunting question as we address the rapid decline of this keystone species while also supporting the tribes who are fighting to keep their fish populations alive.
