TOTEMS


When Master Carver Bill Henderson was asked to design and carve the artwork for Discovery Harbour Shopping Centre, he thought of the people of the Wei Wai Kum First Nation, the indigenous people of the area around the Shopping Centre. The various animal and supernatural creatures that you see around Discovery Harbour Shopping Centre represent the various ancestral clans, histories and legends of the people that call this land home.
