I am happy to announce the release of my new music video “Salmon Come Home,” directed by Gary Washington, with Alaskan wildlife and scenic footage by Daniel Zatz. “Salmon Come Home” was written to raise awareness about two proposed mines in Alaska: the Chuitna River Mine & the Pebble Mine.
Watch “Salmon Come Home” Chuitna River Mine version
Watch “Salmon Come Home” Pebble Mine version
The proposed Chuitna River Mine (60 miles west of Anchorage across the Cook Inlet in Tyonek, Alaska) would dig up thirteen miles of a salmon river, 300 feet down, thus destroying the salmon habitat there which provides salmon for the Athabaskan People living in the region and for the commercial fishing industry. The Pebble Mine (Bristol Bay) would create a gold and copper mine in the spawning grounds of the largest remaining salmon run on Earth, also destroying the salmon run for the Native Peoples and fishing industry.
I am releasing two versions of the video, one for the Chuitna campaign, and one for the Pebble Mine campaign. Both versions contain the same video and music, with different introductions and endings.
