This Fall Run4Salmon

The Run4Salmon is a 300-mile trek that follows the historical journey of the salmon from the San Joaquin/Sacramento Delta to the Winnemem Waywaket (McCloud River) to raise awareness about the policies that are threatening our waters, our fish and our indigenous lifeways.

Winnemem Wintu – The Middle Water People

We are a traditional tribe who inhabits our ancestral territory from Mt. Shasta down the McCloud River watershed. When the Shasta Dam was constructed during World War II, it flooded our home and blocked the salmon runs.

The salmon are an integral part of our lifeway and of a healthy McCloud River watershed. We believe that when the last salmon is gone, humans will be gone too. Our fight to return the salmon to the McCloud River is no less than a fight to save the Winnemem Wintu Tribe.

As salmon people and middle water people we advocate for all aspects of clean water and the restoration of salmon to their natural spawning grounds.
