Indian Chant to Discovery Bay Salmon

Photo of two women performing native American Indian chantOn the first evening of my recent stay at Beckett Point on Discovery Bay near Puget Sound, the silence was suddenly broken by the banging of a drum and the sound of native American Indian chant. The sound came from two women further up the beach. In talking to them subsequently they told us that they were chanting to the salmon in the bay. As it turned out, the salmon are running at this time of year, and when we first arrived the water just a little off shore was alive with salmon jumping in the water. The ceremony performed by the women only added to the mystical nature of the evening as the sun set.
