This rectangular Coast Salish design depicts two Coast Salish guardian spirit dancers singing the song of their power. The subtle circle between them is a drum with Salish sound waves emanating from it. In contemporary Canadian visual culture, crescents are utilized to symbolize sound waves. This is a cultural commonality that Coast Salish and Canadian cultures have in common. In Coast Salish art, crescents are used to create a real rhythmic rippling, a real fluid flowing feeling.
Cortes Radio, in collaboration with Klahoose First Nation and Friends of Cortes Island, is proud to announce progress on our 2016-17 Deep Roots spoken word initiative.
