        Sense of Smell Leads Salmon Home

        Learn how natural cycles are related to subsistence living. Hear about the Moon's importance to the Lummi people of western Washington State, and how the lunar cycles tell them when it is time to fish and time to gather. In addition, a Coast Salish Elder from British Columbia, Canada, speaks about the interdependence of nature and explains how the scent from a fir tree helps salmon find their way back home. This video segment was adapted from a student video produced at Northwest Indian College in Bellingham, Washington.
