Lummi tribe releases salmon to endangered orcas in sacred ceremony
SALISH SEA, Wash. -- This month, Lummi tribal leaders released a single Chinook salmon into the Salish Sea as a spiritual offering to the starving, endangered southern resident orcas. The symbolic feeding was also a message to government leaders that more needs to be done to save them from extinction. There are only 75 southern residents left.
