The First Salmon Ceremony is a sacred event. The tribal fishermen always knew when it was time for the salmon to return. All fishing stopped as soon as the first salmon was caught, and immediate preparations were made on shore for its reception. Not until these preparations were complete could that salmon be brought ashore. All the sick people must be removed from the village, as were pregnant women and those women and girls who were in their regular monthly time. All dead bodies of people and animals must be removed from the village. It was a must for the village to go through a thorough house-cleaning.

We would like to thank the businesses who supported the Winlock Backpack Program following Make a Difference Day. Additional monies were collected in donation cans at Winlock Auto Parts, Yours, Mine and Ours Salon, Guadalajara, the Club, the Fire House, and the Handy Store. Additional food was collected by MacKenzies's Salon, Timberland Bank, and All About Accounting. The support by these businesses and the community has been truly amazing!
