Welcoming Relatives Home: A Ceremony for Salmon
The Colville Confederated Tribes are dedicated to “reuniting with old friends” by reintroducing fish to their shared waters and pronghorn to their ancestral lands. Richard Whitney was raised on the Colville Reservation in north central Washington, and was always in the woods, cutting firewood, hunting, fishing, or just being “out there, on the rez,” especially with his father and uncle. “It’s always been an important part of my life. I feel like I belong in nature,” he says. This sense of belonging, rooted in a culture with ancient ancestral connections to the land they reside on, dovetailed with the scientific management of natural resources when Whitney began a series of internships with the Colville Tribes’ forestry, fisheries, and wildlife department at the age of 14. He went on to earn his master’s degree from Washington State University in natural resource sciences, studying sharp-tailed grouse. Nearly a decade ago, Whitney took his current position as the Tribes’ wildlife program manager.
