The journey began with five logs. Five logs carved into five Salmon Canoes by youth and students above Grand Coulee Dam. One for each of the Five Salmon.

As we paddled upstream, we could feel the momentum building. And not just the momentum that a half-ton dugout canoe tends to carry!

As we journey up the River, at a time when the Columbia River Treaty is at a pivotal state, we listen to a conversation between shareholders of the river, a conversation that takes place on the riverbanks, at conferences and on the water itself.

Ecosystem function and fish passage, ethics and science. Technicians and spiritual leaders.

Not if. But When.

On this three month expedition, the crew of Voyages of Rediscovery, paddled dugout canoes the 1243 miles upriver from the Sea to the Source of the Columbia River.

The five canoes, carved and paddled by native and non-native youth, symbolically represented Columbia River salmon.

The journey honored those salmon who can no longer reach their ancestral spawning grounds of the Upper Columbia River.

With looming changes in the Columbia River Treaty, we explore the possibility of fish passage and vitality of a functioning ecosystem.

This documentary highlights the positive efforts of Columbia River citizens who are working to restore historic salmon runs above the Grand Coulee Dam.

Not if. But When.
