VANCOUVER – The Wild Salmon Caravan will launch its third annual journey with a Rainbow Parade in Vancouver on Saturday, Oct. 7. The Caravan will then make several stops as it follows the wild salmon from the Salish Seas to Secwepemcul’ecw territory. The Caravan will be led this year by Salish matriarchs from Indigenous communities all along the route from Vancouver to the Adams River.
This event takes place on unceded and occupied Coast Salish territory, specifically that of the Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), and mi ce:p kʷətxʷiləm (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
In celebration of Wild Salmon and Indigenous Food Sovereignty come join the Cedar Cottage Food Network in creating a medicine wheel garden in Trout Lake Park. This garden will provide space for our urban communities to access traditional medicine plants of the Coast Salish Peoples, while also creating a space of sanctuary and healing. On Sept 24 we will be working together to build the garden, plant the medicines and celebrate the healing powers of the elements.
This event will include a potluck, so please feel free to bring a dish to share!!
Come for the whole day or drop by for a visit. Tools are provided
