An expression of the people, culture, ceremony and songs along the Fraser, River of Salmon Peoples captures what the Fraser River, and its most valuable resource, the salmon, means to First Nations communities along its basin. The result of nine community engagements, extensive research over two years, and illuminating photographs and artwork, this book includes the oral narratives of each community along the river. While capturing timeless Indigenous stories and legends about the salmon and the river, this book is also an exploration of the future of the salmon and waters of the Fraser River.
