The line wrapped around The Enterprise Rancheria Tribal Office puts on the even to give thousands of pounds of free salmon to families in need.

Crews from the Estom Yumeka Tribe harvest the salmon eggs at the Feather River Fish Hatchery and every year they work together to hold this event to share it all with the community.

"We're all together on this earth even though we come from different cultures and different places we are here together so we need to take care of eachother," said Creig Marcus, Enterprise Rancheria Tribal Administrator.

This years event, the fish came frozen and filleted from up North.

"We came here about 6:30 a.m.  and we were the first and we came here to get the fish," said Elene Todiras, Oroville resident.

"It's just an awesome experience to have this happen to the community. We don't get too much salmon free to us so it's awesome to have something to go in our tummies to eat," said Antonio Zamudio, Oroville resident.

The event was first come first serve, but luckily the tribal office received 16 pallets full of salmon to feed those who attended.

Salmon is a staple within the Estom Yumeka Maidu Tribe.

"Salmon was a main source of substance for the tribe for thousands of years its become part of the culture spuirtually and culturally both," said Marcus.
