Salmon Girl at YPT




As far as Margie is concerned, she is the best fisher in her family. Then one day she slips on the rocks and tumbles into the water. But instead of drowning, she sprouts fins and a tail and discovers she can breathe! Margie’s perspective changes as she learns from animals and elders, of her Indigenous forebears, the Salmon People. This beautiful dance-drama encourages you to consider your own relationship to the world around you.
