Importance of Salmon to NW Indians


Willie and Peggen Frank are building on Billy Frank's legacy of pulling people from all walks of life together to learn fully about the needs of salmon in this time of rising temperatures. We must act in solidarity with the Tribal environmental knowledge and conservation wisdom developed by Northwest Indians since time immemorial. Willie Frank III is the son of Billy Frank Jr., Nisqually Tribal Council Member and Nisqually fisherman. Peggen Frank is the Executive Director of Salmon Defense and an enrolled member of the Northern Arapaho Tribe. $5 donation and bring a healthy snack to share.
