Stillaguamish Tribe renews salmon ceremony


The Stillaguamish Tribe hasn't sent out its fishermen for salmon since 1985. The tribe hasn't celebrated with a formal salmon ceremony since some time before that. Even when other tribes continued welcoming the fish that are at the center of Coast Salish culture, the Stillaguamish instead focused on reviving the chinook run on the north fork of the Stillaguamish River.
