Haida Gwai Rituals

If you catch your first chinook off Haida Gwai Island, be prepared for these rites of passage!

Up at Peregrine Lodge on the Haida Gwai Islands off British Columbia, you're pretty much cut off from civilization.

Maybe that's one reason for the rituals that follow catching your first Chinook Salmon. Tyler Kapela of North American Fisherman is not one to back down from tradition, so he obliged them and partook in a couple mildly-disturbing rituals after boating his first chinook. Enjoy!
