UCUT and other Tribes and First Nations are pleased to release Treaty Talks, a video intended to start public discussion about the feasibility of fish passage above Grand Coulee Dam. The video follows the salmons’ ancestral journey up the Columbia River.

Treaty Talks raises awareness about the damage to the Columbia River by industry, Grand Coulee and other dams, and the Columbia River Treaty, which was ratified 50 years ago. Tribes and First Nations are working to ensure that ecosystem-based function and fish passage are recognized as vital to the future of the river.
