The purpose of the Northwest Indians (ATNI) Salmon Marketing Program is to add value to tribal fishers’ and harvesters’ catches
and keep more of the value added chain in Indian Country.

Since its inception in 2010, the program staff and stakeholders have assisted over 125 tribal fishers, harvesters, individuals, and businesses
and generating an economic impact of over $1 million through new sales, increased revenues, and higher premiums.

"This program is our opportunity to invest in Indian Country while serving a high quality, healthy product throughout our resort.
We are committed to setting ourselves apart by putting quality first and supporting inter-tribal cooperation through the ATNI initiative.”

Mike Fisher, General Manager of Chinook Winds Casino Resort

"Working with tribal communities and highlighting traditional Native foods resourced by tribal fisherman is a passion of mine."
"Wild-caught salmon has a higher quality and taste than farmed salmon. There are also studies showing the health benefits
of the wild salmon as well.”
Jack Strong, Executive Chef of Chinook Winds Casino Resort

“As long as I have been involved people have been talking ‘buy Indian.’ It seems like it’s time to walk the walk."
Mike Burton, Director, ATNI Economic Development
