Wild Salmon Caravan 2018 Highlights

The Grandview Woodland Food Connect was pleased and honored to again help organize and participate in the Indigenous led decolonization Wild Salmon Caravan. Beyond our involvement in core organizing, hosting many planning meetings at Britannia and supported logistics and arts build planning and activities for the Vancouver WSC parade, we further commissioned the building of a new bike float made by our artist in resident, Giles Chin. His creation of a beautiful mermaid (parade theme) float was a highlight of the parade, which ran along Granville street to the Roundhouse on Sept 22 and was a beautiful expression of grassroots art and social action in an effort to raise awareness of the need to protect wild salmon and support indigenous food sovereignty. The parade ended with a beautiful waterfront ceremony at David Lam Park and feast and performance at the Roundhouse. The GWFC also brought our previous year’s salmon bike float up to Chase in Secwepemc (Shushwap) territory and participated in the last leg of the WSC and Chase parade.
