December 19, 2013, Ceremony of Tears – Goodbye to Kettle Falls by Maggie Crabtree
the Grand Coulee Dam was built, the waters of the great Columbia River
were backed up - all the way to the Canadian border. One of the most
significant losses to the river and to the tribes who lived there were
the salmon runs, and the majestic Kettle Falls, located on the river
just north of the town of Kettle Falls, WA. Come hear the story of the great river,
and the historic goodbye to the Salmon of the Upper Columbia.
