This beautifully shot film documents the work of the Nez Perce Tribe to restore habitat and recover wild salmon in the Snake River basin. It shows how, despite these efforts, salmon are still threatened with extinction, largely due to four dams on the Lower Snake River. These massive obstacles block the salmon’s journey up and down the river, as well as creating stagnant reservoirs that get too hot for salmon to survive.

Please join us on October 25 for your chance to see “Covenant of the Salmon People” and hear from the film’s Executive Producer and Nez Perce Chairman Shannon Wheeler. In the midst of negotiations about the dams between the Biden Administration, states, and Tribes, this film couldn’t come at a better time!

“The Nez Perce Tribe is a federally recognized tribe in north-central Idaho. The Nez Perce (or Nimiipuu) have been connected to the lands and waters of modern-day Idaho, Washington, Oregon, and Montana long before the creation of the Nez Perce Reservation. Today, the Nez Perce Tribe upholds many traditional lifeways, including fishing, hunting, gathering, and traditional ceremonies and celebrations. Learn more here:”
