Someone once told me that anything can be accomplished if you just have enough time and money. But for many people and communities, including Lummi, currency is something far more valuable than a dollar bill.
Salmon is our most important currency; it’s the lifeblood of our people and always has been. Our job is to ensure we have enough salmon spread across time to sustain our people and Schelangen, our way of life, now and for generations to come. That’s why to protect our treaty fishing rights is to protect the very future of our people.
