As Long As The Rivers Run
Preserving a documentary film about the struggle for treaty fishing rights
Tribal fishers, leaders and others active in the treaty fishing rights struggle are being interviewed for the second phase of the “As Long as the Rivers Run” documentary.
The first phase documented the Fish Wars of the late 1960s and early 1970s. The film, directed by Carol Burns and co-produced by Hank Adams, was acquired by Salmon Defense in September 2009.
The “As Long as the Rivers Run” project is aimed at conserving and redistributing the film as an educational tool. The film will be remastered to meet today’s digital standards, and will be distributed to tribes, schools and others.
The movie is available on DVD or streaming through the Internet Archive.
