Puyallup Tribal News: First Fish Ceremony Shows Respect for Tribal Icon

The Puyallup Tribe News covers the recent first fish ceremony on the Puyallup River:

In spite of a rainy morning, the community gathered along the banks of the Puyallup River May 21 anxiously awaiting the fishermen tasked with catching the season’s first fish for an annual ceremony showing respect to salmon. While the crowd awaited the fishermen’s return, students from Grandview Early Learning Center sang traditional songs and drummed in harmony with each other before respected elder Dobie Tom helped lead this year’s First Fish Ceremony.
