"This vase, which has 2 faces, depicts the salmon — a great food source for everyone. With my people, the Metis, the buffalo was the main resource, yet they almost disappeared after deliberate programs by government and others. The West Coast Nations had specific stories to honour the salmon. One concerns the story of Salmon Child who sacrificed himself every year to the people so they could live."
