Fixing the Earth and restoring balance is an age-old ceremonial practice for the Tribes of the lower Klamath River. The Yurok Tribe’s Fisheries Program has applied this long standing cultural ethic to the management and restoration of Chinook and coho salmon populations of the Klamath River, and to other species such as sturgeon and lamprey eel. This film presents the historic context of the Yurok Tribe’s struggle to affirm their fishing rights and to fully participate in the management and restoration of Klamath fisheries today and into the future.
