“Ancient Journey” honors spawning salmon and the importance of salmon to coastal Native peoples. The central mask represents the salmon yua (spirit), the paint colors represent how salmon change color when they spawn, and the enameled discs represent the salmon eggs. The willow branches on either side call the salmon back to their spawning streams to renew their population.
