Salmon Reflection, 2021

Norwegian/Unangax filmmaker, Anna Hoover lives in Alaska, and has spent her summers in salmon territory on the waters of Bristol Bay.

Hoover’s 4-minute film, Salmon Reflection, includes carefully curated voices and visuals, gathered with the goal of communicating the sacred reverence she and her culture hold for salmon.

Salmon are the lifeblood of the communities they feed and support. Salmon Reflection provides a portal into an indigenous worldview of what salmon need.

Be carried by Aassanaaq Kairairuak’s Yup’ik song Seal Boy, and find your place in solidarity as a steward for future healthy generations of salmon and people.
