Suquamish Clearwater Casino Resort is proud to announce the first screening of Shadow of the Salmon November 19, 2007 at 7pm in the Chief Kitsap Hall.
The 48-minute docudrama explores the significance of salmon to the eco-system, to tribal culture and life in the Northwest. It begins with the journey of a young Native American from Pine Ridge, South Dakota, who travels to Coastal Salish country to spend the summer with his aunt and uncle. During his stay he is honored as a member of his coastal family, listens to lessons from the elders, participates in a First Salmon Ceremony and learns the importance of the Annual Canoe Journey. He is also given valuable lessons about contemporary tribal natural resource management, including response to an oil spill.
"Shadow of the Salmon has been produced to help fill the gap in public perception of the tribes and the environment. After the initial screening at Clearwater it will be distributed, along with an accompanying curriculum, to middle schools throughout the region. It will be screened in several locations across the country at a later date, including the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian in Washington D.C., and it is likely slated for a nationwide broadcast or release to theaters," said Billy Frank, Jr., Executive Producer of the film.
