The story of the 2002 Fish Kill must be told again and again … and be remembered….

Klamath River

A community-based play about the Klamath River Watershed developed by members of the Karuk, Hupa, and Yurok tribes and others.

Salmon Is Everything was developed from interviews and personal stories and insights of Karuk, Hupa and Yurok people who were directly affected by the 2002 fish kill on the Klamath River. The script was developed by Theresa May, UO assistant professor of theatre arts, in collaboration with members of the Karuk, Hupa and Yurok communities. The play will be presented in University of Oregon’s Robinson Theatre May 20-June 4, 2011.
