Wild Salmon Caravan 2021

The Working Group on Indigenous Food Sovereignty in partnership with Vancouver Parks Board, Further we Rise and DTES Heart of the City Festival presents the 7th Annual celebration of the spirit of wild salmon

We invite you to join us to honour those who have survived and those we have lost, and the wisdom, knowledge and values encoded within Grandmother’s Law, an Indigenous system of governance that preserves the health and integrity of our land and food systems (needed more than ever when systems of wild salmon fisheries governance are eroding their health). –  

Dawn Morrison (Secwépemc), Wild Salmon Caravan founder and Curator
