Today on Mak­ing Con­tact we present Salt­wa­ter Sound­walk: Indige­nous Audio Tour of the Seat­tle Coast. Pro­duced by Jen­ny Asarnow and Rachel Lam, this rhyth­mic, watery audio expe­ri­ence, streams of sto­ries that ebb and flow, inter­mix­ing Eng­lish with Coast Sal­ish lan­guages. Indige­nous Coast Sal­ish peo­ples con­tin­ue to stew­ard this land and pre­serve its lan­guage, despite set­tler colo­nial­ism, indus­tri­al­iza­tion and gen­tri­fi­ca­tion. Part sto­ry, part sound col­lage, this piece is scored entire­ly with the sounds of the waters and ani­mals who live in and around the Sal­ish Sea.
