Co-Hosts

The Salmon Homecoming Alliance is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit foundation, established to organize, plan, develop and facilitate programs and events associated with Salmon Homecoming. Board members represent a variety of governments, associations, foundations, and industries. Our objectives are to provide opportunities for tribal and non-tribal communities to come together in a positive atmosphere, learn from one another, and explore ways to support the cooperative spirit in salmon restoration and protection.

We are happy to continue the tradition by celebrating the annual Salmon Homecoming ceremony. The celebrations have always included cultural presentations, such as Northwest traditional gatherings, Pow Wows, and Cedar Canoe events. We’ve sponsored environmental fairs, educational outreach activities, salmon bakes, and even salmon runs. We present “Seventh Generation Legacy Awards” each year to people who have made important contributions to natural resources and Indian/non-Indian relations. We have accomplished much, but our Salmon Story has just begun.
