Pacific NW Native American History:
Humans have lived in Washington for up to 11,500 years. The first inhabitants of present-day Washington were descendants of the peoples who crossed the land bridge linking the northeastern part of Asia and North America at the Bering Sea. These first inhabitats' descendents came to look upon salmon with great reverence and had special rituals and legends for the yearly salmon run.
One native legend explains that the six salmon species (Chinook, Chum, Coho, Pink, Sockeye, and Steelhead) were the names of the villages of the Salmon People, who lived far to the west, beyond the ocean. Only the Salmon People could decide if the salmon would run. To encourage the run, tribes took precautions such as keeping streams and rivers clean, and holding First Salmon ceremonies to honor the first returning salmon.
The First Salmon Ceremony was held every year to celebrate the catching of the first salmon of the season. The fish was carried to the village by two elders with its head pointing upstream. It was then roasted and the entire community took a part in eating it. The bones of the salmon were then floated down the river to return to the salmon people. There, the first salmon would report on the gracious treatment and respect it had received.
The natives saw this gesture of thankfulness as essential to ensuring the return of the salmon. By treating the return of the salmon with respect and thankfulness, the native populations managed to live in balance with the salmon runs for many thousands of years.
The Port Gamble S'Klallam, Jamestown S'Klallam and Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe are all considered signatories to the Treaty of Point No Point, which preserved the right to fish at the "usual and accustomed places".
