"There are five species of Pacific salmon: chinook [...], coho [...], sockeye [...], pink [...], and chum. All five species hatch in freshwater, mature in the sea, and then return to their freshwater homes to spawn and die [...] Salmon are honored and celebrated by all coastal peoples: the fish serves as a powerful symbol of regeneration, self-sacrifice, and perseverance" (Shearar 2000: 91)  - Understanding Northwest Coast Art: A Guide to Crest, Beings and Symbols
