BC Ferries and First Peoples’ Cultural Council Announce Name of New Salish-Class Vessel and Call for Artists for Vessel Artwork
In recognition of the Coast Salish as the traditional stewards and original mariners
of the Salish Sea, BC Ferries has named its new Salish-Class ferry Salish Heron. BC Ferries will
honour the Salish Heron name with Coast Salish artwork on the exterior and interior of the
vessel, and is partnering with the First Peoples’ Cultural Council once again to facilitate the
commission of an original design from a B.C. Coast Salish artist.
