The Yakama Native Americans have practiced the same sustainable fishing techniques for the last 10,000 years.
Welcome to the great Pacific Northwest, where tributaries such as the Wind and Klickitat rivers feed crystal clear snow melt into the mighty Columbia River basin. This is where the Yakama Native Americans and the King Chinook Salmon have flourished amongst one another for the last 10,000 years, over that entire period the Yakama Natives lived to fish and fished to live. By using the same sustainable techniques we practice today the run of Salmon remained healthy year after year. Today the Yakama Native Americans still make a living catching, processing and selling the legendary King Chinook Salmon.
