"In Chiloquin, Oregon, a tribesman held a hand drum at the Sprague River’s edge. He closed his eyes and readied for the opening prayer at the annual Return of the C’waam Ceremony. The C’waam, also known as the Lost River sucker, has sustained the Klamath tribes during hard times. According to native lore, watchmen stood along the riverbanks to see when the fish would return."
