North Vancouver artists share story behind stunning Squamish Nation mural
North Shore News | December 05, 2020
A mural inspired by a traditional Squamish Nation story has been created by North Vancouver artists Lauren Brevner and James Harry, and can be seen between Granville and Pender Streets in Vancouver. Snékwem, or “the sun” lane, is inspired by a story that was passed down to Harry, who is an Indigenous artist of Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Namgis decent. It "speaks of visitors with supernatural powers who, with the help of snéḵwem, led the Squamish people to the village of the salmon people."
