You may have noticed a fresh coat of paint on the side of the Lax Kw’alaams Business Development office.

We’re in the process of having a new mural installed on the side of our building, on 1st avenue facing Mariners Park.

Russell Mather has been busy painting panels with a core group of volunteers at Coast Tsimshian Academy in Lax Kw’alaams.

The mural will depict the Lax Kw’alaams Business Development logo, also designed by Russell Mather. The logo is called “Our Wealth”, and depicts a stylised grease bowl design, a symbol of wealth in Coast Tsimshian culture.

This initiative is made possible by Transition Prince Rupert’s Paint the Town initiative, and Pembina.
