From Aug. 30 to Sept. 1, the Stellat’en First Nation’s Salmon Fest accompanies the annual salmon run with a three-day community celebration of salmon and connection with the land through the demonstration of traditional fish preservation methods, craft workshops, and feasts of locally sourced foods.

On Aug. 31, Stellat’en councillor Tannis Reynolds presented to the community her study of the importance of talook (salmon in the Carrier language) to the First Nation community — research that allowed her to earn a Master of Arts degree in First Nations studies from the University of Northern British Columbia.
