Yuba River Salmon and Dams

On Saturday October 10th, 2009, more than 400 people gathered on the banks of the South Yuba River to join the Tsi-Akim Maidu Tribe in their annual Calling Back the Salmon ceremony. Similar to other events such as the Yurok Tribes Salmon Festival on the Klamath River, this event celebrates the return of salmon to the river and the bounty they once provided the tribe.
