Salmon Culture celebrates the connections between salmon and Alaska Native peoples and honors salmon as a resource that has nourished communities physically and spiritually for thousands of years.
Says exhibition co-curator 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. When we share about salmon, we are sharing about family, food, and love. We are celebrating a fish that unites us across generations and cultures.”
Salmon Culture is organized by a circle of Alaska Native artists, culture bearers, and activists who are culturally connected to salmon: Anna Hoover, Nadia Jackinsky-Sethi, Erin Gingrich, Rochelle Adams, Drew Michael, and Ilegvak.
