Availability: Only 1 available

Red Cedar wood, Acrylic paint

Ligwełdakw, or Laich-Kwil-Tach, is a Liq’wala word referring to a large, supernatural Sea Worm that is very difficult to destroy. Even if one manages to cut the Ligwełdakw up into pieces, it is said that these pieces will survive and swim away. Therefore, in the Liq’wala language, Ligwełdakw means “unkillable thing.”

Liq’wala is the ancestral language of the Laich-Kwil-Tach peoples in British Columbia. Their traditional territory includes the east side of Vancouver Island, from the Qualicum River in the south to the Tsitika River in the north. On the mainland, their territory includes the land from Toba Inlet to Jackson Bay, and all of the islands in between.
