Come celebrate the ocean’s bounty at the first annual Sechelt Salmon Festival

Please join the Sechelt First Nation (shíshálh) to celebrate this year’s generous return of the sockeye salmon on Saturday, October 25th, with a complimentary grilled salmon feast at the House of héwhíwus (House of Chiefs) complex, 5555 Sunshine Coast Highway, Sechelt. We’ll be serving up grilled salmon with side dishes and refreshments from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. and we welcome you to enjoy it with us.

Come early, 4 p.m., to see a demonstration of our community’s ancient salmon cooking technique by Sechelt Elder James Dixon (mus-swiya) and hear some fun stories about the wild salmon. At 5:30 there will be traditional singing and dancing by our drummers and singers, xwamstut (which translates as “Ambassadors”), and barbecue cookbook author Rockin’ Ronnie Shewchuk will start serving up our festive salmon supper.

Let’s get together and appreciate the wealth of salmon in our waters.

The shíshálh (Sechelt) people value the importance of wild salmon to our health, wealth and culture.  Our Nation has been working for over 20 years with the Sunshine Coast Regional District (SCRD) and Regional Power to increase salmon runs.
