Red Barn Event: Healing the Big River-Salmon Dreams and the Columbia River Treaty

May 28 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Healing The Big River masterfully combines the art of visual storytelling with passionate essays. From the source, a tiny spring in the Canadian Rockies, to the sea, readers are guided on a journey back to the origins of the 1243 mile river and learn about the complicated history and impact of the Columbia River Treaty .The twelve contributing authors, a mix of first nations, tribes, and salmon recovery advocates, speak of their relationship to the Columbia and advocate for a new treaty that honors Indigenous knowledge and starts the process to restore one of the greatest salmon runs the world has ever seen.

The 2019 release of “Healing the Big River – Salmon Dreams and the Columbia River Treaty”, is timed to coincide with the re-negotiations of the Columbia River Treaty between the U.S and Canada, currently underway.

Free event, with donation basket at the door.
Doors open at 6:30pm for community social with local beer and wine available for purchase, talk begins at 7:00pm.
