The Wild Salmon Caravan was ‘spawned’ at the Wild Salmon Convergence in 2014, a think tank that brought together Indigenous fisherpeople, researchers, and thought leaders. The purpose was to discuss issues, concerns, situations and strategies for Indigenous knowledge in wild salmon conservation to address the record low numbers of wild salmon returning to the Adams/Shuswap Lake Watershed to spawn.

In the spirit of Desmond Tutu and Nelson Mandela who called for Rainbow Peoples to unite in a post-apartheid South Africa, as well as the Rainbow Coalitions of the 1960’s that called for revolutionary solidarity across black, brown, Indigenous and poor white communities, we invite Peoples of all colours to stand with Indigenous communities to stop the widespread destruction of wild salmon and their habitat in the forests, fields and waterways.

Following the theme of Rainbow Warriors, we call on you to join us in lively and colourful artistic and cultural expressions of our love for wild salmon in the Wild Salmon!

The events are being planned by the Working Group on Indigenous Food Sovereignty in partnership with Vines Art Festival.
