Now why would anyone like to have Walker Goldsmiths lost wax cast Sterling Salmon Earrings hanging from their ears? Because they love fish, especially Salmon! There’s not much better food for humans in this world than Salmon and let’s lift a hunk of Smoked Salmon as a tribute to celebrate good food. The Salmon is a unique symbol of fertility, immortality and determination. Is this your totem; your wannabe? There are a great many stories of Salmon being a supernatural being and it’s easy to see how they came about because of Salmon’s great determination to live, procreate and do it over and over and over again. We are so grateful to the Creator for his gift of Salmon and thankful to Raven for helping bring Salmon to mankind. Tshimshian legend tells of five different villages of Salmon people which corresponds with the five different varieties of Salmon. The villages were spread around the edge of the ocean. In the early spring, one village at a time, the people would transform into Salmon. They would then swim across the ocean and up the rivers to spawn. The bones of the first Salmon caught every year by native people were either burned, as on the far Northwest Coast, or buried so that the Salmon Spirit would return. Salmon bones are believed to find their way back to the villages of Salmon People, where the first Salmon will become whole again and a renewal ceremony would be celebrated. Wear these Salmon earrings, celebrate and enjoy the bounty!
