Salmon Spirit

Wy-Kan-Ush-Mi Wa-Kish-Wit

The salmon's spirit -- Wy-Kan-Ush-Mi Wa-Kish-Wit -- is sacred life. The salmon was provided a perfect world in which to enjoy its existence. For thousands of years, the salmon unselfishly gave of itself for the physical and spiritual sustenance of humans. The salmon's spirit has not changed; the human spirit has.
