Salmon- Abundance, Prosperity & Determination
Salmon is a symbol of abundance, wealth and prosperity because Salmon is the primary food source for Northwest Coastal people, representing the ability to provide for your family. Salmon are Supernatural beings who give up their life to feed our people. We hold them in high esteem and honor their return every year. Out of respect, ceremonies are often held by the Northwest Coast people to celebrate the return of the Salmon to their traditional spawning grounds.
Bear- Strength & Teacher
The Bear symbolizes family and strength. Considered a protector of our forests, we look to the Bear to show us how to fish and pick berries in our territory details below.
