  • Salmon
    According to Tsimshian legend, salmon were originally salmon people living in 5 villages. These five species of salmon represented the 5 villages -- Iyai (spring salmon), Mesaw (sockeye), Werh (coho), Stemawn (pink), and Qanees (dog salmon). In early spring, they changed into their fish form and started on their journey, but each group at different times. Salmon was a major food source for all the Northwest Coast peoples, and therefore a major part of their cultures. The Salmon is celebrated in ceremonies and is a symbol of fertility and bounty.
