Celebrate the beauty of the Salmon River delta and the importance of water to the planet and humanity this Sunday.
The Switzmalph Cultural Society hosts a traditional gathering at the Secwepemc traditional village site at the Salmon River Delta – turn right off the Trans-Canada Highway across from Fischer’s Funeral Home and follow the road towards the river.
The popular annual event to celebrate Secwepemc traditions and Rivers Day takes place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sept. 30.
The always-festive occasion begins with a community potluck lunch between noon and 1 p.m. The salmon return is very low this year, but organizers are hopeful they can offer barbecued salmon and bannock for a $5 donation.
The organized portion of the program begins at 1 p.m. where there will be displays, river tours, the annual fish race raffle, which has been a great hit for the children, as well as traditional native dancers and other events.
Don’t forget to pick your salmon by 2 p.m.
There will be some native crafts for sale, and as the society wishes to support local artisans and craftspersons, there will not be any set-up fees. Email email@example.com for artisan/craftsperson registration.
Don’t forget to take an item for the potluck lunch.
