Since before recorded history, salmon ran in the northwest rivers like blood in the veins of the land. Their range defines the geography of the Northwest, from small headwater streams to the open ocean of the North Pacific. Salmon is a primary food source for the northwest people who treasure and revere them. Once called the "salmon people", their return from the ocean was marked by a celebration of ancestors returning to their homes. This piece is made using Sterlium-Plus sterling silver.
