Since its first publication in 1891, the Royal BC Museum has published hundreds of works on a myriad of subjects.

The book, Spirits of the Coast: Orcas in Science, Art and History, is a fascinating and moving tribute to these magnificent mammals.

Veronica Cooper spoke with Kwakwaka’wakw multimedia artist Rande Cook, who contributed a carving, and also re-told an ancestral story, for the book.

Orcas: Our Shared Future is at the Royal BC Museum until January 9, 2022.
