Salmon connections - the heart of it all
As part of the salmon connections and resilience series for 54 Degrees North, we reached out to a number of people who have defended salmon in some way against the myriad of threats they face. We hear about their connectedness to this critical species that is so intertwined with cultures and communities of the Skeena region and throughout the Pacific Northwest.
Interviews and insights from Yahaan, Chief Namoks, Nuskmata, Jonathon Moore and Chris Sergeant who share their salmon love stories and connections.
Music thanks to the regionally talented Telkwa Ted Turner, whose music lives on, and to Facundo Gastiazoro for the artwork.
