This season's story focuses on the significance of the salmon from an Aboriginal culture point of view as we celebrate the four-year cycle of the returning salmon. This year is considered a dominant salmon run year where approximately 15 million sockeye salmon will return home to British Columbia after two years roaming the Pacific. While the salmon is known for its instinct, determination, provision and renewal of life, the annual salmon run extends beyond the cultural heritage of First Nations. Today, salmon bring positive impacts on both the broader environment and economy for First Nations throughout the province. The 'Journey of the Salmon' at Klahowya Village will provide guests with the opportunity to learn more about the role of this vital fish.
