Roy Henry Vickers
Roy Vickers is an west coast artist who has given us permission to use his work, Pink Salmon Drum; as our logo. Roy has this to say about salmon:
Wild salmon have been the lifeblood of first nations people in northern British Columbia for thousands of years. The Skeena river and it’s tributaries reach deep into the interior of and affect the Tsimshian, Gitksan, Nishga, Haida, and Wet’suwet’en people. Wild salmon have been the main resource from the sea, supporting commercial fishing, canneries, sports fishing, and most important to us, the subsistence fishery. Without wild salmon stocks all animals in the northern region will be affected. Without wild salmon stocks our forest and ocean life will die.”
