Save Our Wild Salmon

1 map All Our Relations 2023

On behalf of Se’Si’Le, we invite you to stand with Indigenous leaders and Tribal communities across the Northwest in support of a Snake River journey and the Indigenous-led movement to restore salmon by removing the Snake River dams. This important journey comes at a critical time for the Snake River, endangered salmon and orcas, and the region's Tribal communities.

The 2023 All Our Relations Journey, Snake River Campaign will travel through Washington, Oregon, and Idaho to inspire and build community, and to press the Biden Administration and our region's members of Congress to protect salmon from extinction and restore them to abundance. Native peoples in the Northwest have depended on their relationship with salmon since time immemorial. To protect the salmon from extinction and uphold our nation's promises to Tribal communities, we must urgently replace the services of the four lower Snake River dams and restore a free-flowing river.

As Chairman Shannon Wheeler of the Nez Perce Tribe explains: “Time is running out to protect our sacred salmon. This is a crisis that threatens our way of life, and it is a violation of our treaty rights. The federal government is failing to uphold the promises made to our ancestors when we ceded our lands.”

Events will feature an 8-foot in diameter hand-crafted steel sculpture created for the journey by Lummi Nation members A. Cyaltsa Finkbonner and Master Carver Jewell James that represents a vision of 'All Our Relations.'
