Salmon Culture celebrates connections between salmon and Alaska Native peoples through contemporary, historical and archaeological works of art. This exhibition honors salmon as a resource that has nourished our communities physically and spiritually for thousands of years. As shared by exhibition circle advisor, Erin Gingrich: “Salmon are gifts, every single one a blessing. The continuity of their ancient cycle is something we owe to the past, present and future, not just our own future generations but the futures of all that have a part in this ecosystem.”
This exhibition is organized by a circle of Alaska Native salmon people: Anna Hoover, Erin Gingrich, Rochelle Adams, Drew Michael, Nadia Jackinsky-Sethi and Ilgavak Peter Williams. We invite you to celebrate salmon with us.
This exhibit opens at our First Friday on October 7 with free admission and light refreshments.
