  • Description

    Squilex Indians At Salmon Arm, British Columbia, about two-hundred miles northeast of Vancouver, celebrate their biggest 'Salute to the Sockeye' Festival. Nearby, in the Little Adam River, the first of an estimated one-and-a-half million salmon have come to spawn and die after the biggest sockeye fishing season in British Columbia history. An Indian Drum Stick Game is one of the attractions of this centennial year festival. The Indians have celebrated the return of the salmon for centuries. For them it's a symbol of nature's life cycle. And though the salmon began arriving a week late this year...for the first time in living memory...the numbers indicate another bumper catch in four year's time.
