Orcas: spirits of the Coast Boxed Notecards

Orcas: Spirits of the Coast

Orcas are complex social beings. Long feared in settler cultures as “killer whales” and respected and honored by Indigenous cultures, these enigmatic animals have a culture and language all their own. As they journey across the oceans that connect our ever-changing world, Orcas shape us as much as our actions impact them.

This boxed notecard set brings together the works of four diverse artists. Produced to accompany the Royal BC Museum’s exhibition Orcas: Our Shared Future, they imagine and interpret the magic, myths, and ecology—present and future—of these spirited creatures.
