A Prayer for Salmon, Chapter 2

Shasta County, CA — The Winnemem Wintu gather strength and wisdom to defend their culture and way of life at sacred sites high up in the mountains above the McCloud River. June 17, 2018. Judy Silber/The Spiritual Edge

“If we lose our sacred places then our belief is pretty much we lose being Winnemem. I mean, we’ll still have blood lines, but blood lines don’t really make tribes.”

— Caleen Sisk, Hereditary and Spiritual Leader of the Winnemem Wintu people
