Bears and salmon featured prominently in many Northwestern Native American legends as strong and powerful beings that provide life force to all people. This is well illustrated every Springtime when bears fish for salmon by standing in the rivers and by waterfalls and catching them as they jump upstream. It occurred to me that the bear might find herself in a world of mystery and wonder being immersed in the water on a sunny spring day, much as we are when we go diving into this different world.
