There will be a parade after the breakfast, followed at 11:00am by a delicious salmon dinner, cooked in a traditional Yurok way.

This is a family-friendly, free festival.  Attendees will also enjoy watching the highly competitive Stick Game Tournament.  (The Stick Game is played by all local tribes and is a full-contact sport that resembles lacrosse with a wrestling element.  The game is heavy on action.)

There will also be a heavy equipment rodeo for all who enjoy running, or watching, heavy machinery perform technical tasks.  The rodeo entails a set of timed-challenges completed on loaders and skid steers.  Participants can sign up in advance or at the event.

There will also be an Indian Card Games Tournament and a number of cultural demonstrations in a new area designated solely for cultural activities.  There will be various contests throughout the day, along with an array of kids’ activities and vendors.

This is a great opportunity to learn more about the Yurok Tribe, the largest tribe in California, their culture and the Klamath River.  For up-to-date information and to sign up for events visit www.yuroktribe.org/salmonfestival.htm.
