The Salish does not refer to a specific tribal nation. The Lummi, as well as most of the Coast Salish nations used the multiple salmon runs. Yes, they harvest shellfish too, but not exclusively....

I got a Lummi smoked salmon when I was touring the US in 2002. It lasted through the rest of the trip -- amazing fish! The Lummis really have their fishing act together, yet they are denigrated thought Washington state, including, I found, by the Latin American immigrants who I heard call the "scummy lummies."
