To the Indigenous communities of the Northwest coast, the salmon is the most significant food source. For millennia this fish has been held in high esteem and has symbolized perseverance, self-sacrifice, regeneration and prosperity.

With this limited-edition print Alvin Child once again honours the salmon as a primary source of food and an integral part of Indigenous life along the coast. The design depicts a male salmon and an egg after the female has deposited the eggs in a trench in the riverbed.
