The Lost Fish

Yakama Premiere!
December 9, 2013 (Monday)
Heritage Theater
You are invited to attend the Yakama Reservation premiere of the new film “The Lost Fish.” This half-hour film produced jointly by the Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission and Freshwaters Illustrated explores
the importance of lamprey to the Plateau tribes, how their decline has affected tribal cultural practices, and what the tribes are doing to make sure these ancient fish return to their native rivers and streams throughout
the Columbia River Basin.
Following the screening will be a short question and answer period with tribal scientists working on lamprey restoration projects and the filmmaker.
