Last spring was the first year I didn’t go back to Telegraph Creek to get salmon from the Stikine River. Missing my family and country, I figured I’d pay my dues to totl’uga (coho salmon) for supporting the Nations by carving them a piece. Deciding to mix things up, I added the infamous Raven, the trickster, that has been shaking up my life. Fishing is a luxury now, thanks to capitalism and the way society is devolving. Our rivers are being polluted with diseased farmed fish, which are killing native species and creating a cancer to oblivious consumers, hungry for a deal. If only folks knew that greed, developed by advertising and corporations, is curable by the sheer beauty and intuitive symbiosis of our natural world. How do we fight capitalism and save the environment? Raven here symbolizes change: the original Robin Hood, maintaining natural law since animals could talk. - Sage Nowak
