The Salmon Homecoming Festival celebration honors the fall return of the salmon and introduces local families to Native American culture by providing traditional celebrations and a holistic program of related environmental educational activities. Founded as an Incorporated Non-Profit in 2001, The Salmon Homecoming Alliance grows out of Salmon Homecoming Celebration and Salmon Resource Forum, hosted annually by The Seattle Aquarium and the Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission since 1992.
