Bringing the Salmon Home Documentary Film

May 27, 2024 - 7:00pm

The mighty Columbia River was once the source of the world’s greatest salmon runs. But massive dams have blocked salmon from returning to the vast headwaters of the upper Columbia River in Canada for 85 years. Bringing the Salmon Home tells the story of the Syilx Okanagan, Secwépemc, and Ktunaxa Nations who uphold their sacred responsibility to reintroduce the salmon. Today the three Nations are leading a collaborative process with BC and Canada, and working with US Tribes and allies along the river, to bring the salmon home for the benefit of all. In this half-hour film, first person stories combine with vivid landscape and underwater footage, and archival film, to tell the long-hidden story of these Salmon People. 

Wildsight Golden, the Golden BC Museum and Tourism Golden are excited to be partnering to bring this film to Golden on May 27.

Location: Golden Secondary School - Learning Commons (1500 9th St. S, Golden)

There will be elders and salmon warriors from the three Nations in attendance to open the film evening and have audience participation after the film.

The event will be free and there will be only one screening. All are welcome to attend.
