About My Logo
Cedar has been the main sustenance to the Coast Salish people since time immemorial. It was traditionally used for longhouses, dug-out canoes, paddles, clothing, tools, cleansing and much more! This logo is inspired by the view I seen for the 15 years I canoed with the Coast Salish war canoes. If you stand at the Cowichan Bay canoe shed this image is what you will see – Mt. Prevost, Mt Zouhalem, the mouth of the Cowichan River and if you close your eyes hard enough you can feel the vibrations of our ancestors past.
I see counselling depicted in all this – to honour growth within, wisdom from today and the past, and new possibilities for the future!
