Dear Tribal Leaders:
On behalf of the National Congress of American Indians, the Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians, and Nez Perce Tribe, we invite you to join us at the virtual Second Salmon Orca Summit – this Friday, November 19th, at 12pm pst. This Summit builds on the historic collaboration of the first summit in July of this year, to discuss the urgency of the crisis facing Pacific Northwest salmon and Southern Resident Killer Whales (Orca), and the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to restore these species and invest in a thriving Northwest.
This virtual event is open to the public. We hope to educate our neighbors and friends about the plight of our Snake River salmon populations and Puget Sound orcas. When the Creator asked who would nourish us, Salmon stood up to take on that task. It is now our duty to stand up for the Salmon and Orca, to speak for them now that they have no voice man can hear. We hope that you will stand with us in this effort.
We look forward to building strength in this movement, together. We will share stories, be in community, and bring public attention to the unprecedented moment we are facing – a future without fish. We hope you will join us:
Second Salmon Orca Summit
Hosted by the Nez Perce Tribe
Friday, November 19th, 2021
12:00 – 1:15pm PST
In the months following the first summit, national attention on this issue has continued to grow. The White House and US Congress are paying attention. We must raise our voices for the salmon and the orca now! And we urge you to stand with us before it is too late. Please share this invitation with friends and community. You can find more information about the project at salmonorcaproject.com, catch highlights from our first summit here, and share the event on Facebook here.
Thank you for your engagement.
