Returning to the river to witness the annual kokanee salmon migration, CMarie starts to see the seasonal red of the fish everywhere. The kokanee mating, the flowers on the hillside, all these fleeting rituals, are miracles.
This episode takes place on Shoshone-Bannock, Cayuse, Umatilla, and Walla Walla homelands.
