Landing – with paddles up, we come with honest intentions

landingThis work is inspired by the Wild Salmon Paddler journey in 2010, who journeyed down the Fraser River to raise awareness for the protection of Wild Salmon against destructive fish farm practices and in anticipation of the Cohen Commission and the collapse of the 2009 Fraser River Sockeye.  During canoe landings, paddles are raised in order to symbolize that landings are in peace, paddlers announce their intention and ask permission to land from the host territory.
