This event will take place on the traditional territory of the Kwanlin Dün First Nation and the Ta’an Kwäch’än Council in Kwanlin (Whitehorse) Yukon Territory. This is a family friendly, community event where different nations, organizations, agencies, and salmon lovers can gather to celebrate sambay while also learning about freshwater fish and what migration looks like for them. There will be booths set up indoors at the Kwanlin Dün Cultural Centre which is located beside the Chu Nikwan (Yukon River). This river is home to Pacific salmon, from the headwaters in BC through the Yukon and Alaska to the Bering Sea… over 3,000km! Salmon are a vital resource in the north and we have a responsibility to build a strong connection with this species that has been sustaining local First Nations for thousands of years. Will there be salmon in 30 years? Let’s come together to learn from Elders, Knowledge Holders, local fish experts and fish enthusiasts for a fun afternoon of activities and short videos.
