Two salmons

Salmon are an extremely important animal to both the lifestyle and the spirituality of many Native cultures. Like buffalo, salmon willingly give themselves up as food for humans in many Native myths, and therefore these fish hold a special position of honor and respect. There are many taboos and other tribal rules regarding salmon in order not to offend them.Special Salmon Dances and First Salmon Ceremonies are celebrated at the beginning of salmon fishing season throughout the Pacific Northwest region. In Native artwork and literature, salmon are often used as a symbol of determination, renewal, and prosperity.
