Coast Salish / Kwakwaka’wakw Nations
Maynard Johnny Jr. was born on the 4th April, 1973, in Campbell River, located on Vancouver Island off the Coast of British Columbia. He is a descendant of both the Kwakwaka’wakw and Coast Salish Nations and thus has inherited a unique blend of culture and tradition. In addition, his living in Canada and the United States has broadened his scope and influence to that of many native traditions and cultures.
Artistically, although Maynard began drawing at the age of six, it was in his mid-teens that he began to work seriously at developing his natural artistic talent. Due to his various life-experiences his artwork takes influence from many nations, however he blends Coast Salish and Kwakwaka’wakw art forms to result in a unique and contemporary vision of traditional legends and their depictions. During his career, Maynard has won various logo and art competitions. His work can be found in many local and international collections – both private and commercial.

Joe Wilson has created this limited-edition print series illustrating the traditional Coast Salish whorl in which both the male and female Killerwhale are represented in balance and harmony with one another.
The ‘Journey of Hope’ was designed specifically for the survivors of the tsunami in Japan in 2011 to pay tribute to their survival instincts as well as their future hopes and dreams.
The Killerwhale is an important crest symbol, associated with power, strength, dignity and communication.
The Killerwhale is thought to be the reincarnation of great chiefs so they are the majestic protectors of mankind. Many believed that those lost at sea were carried away by the Orca to their villages deep within the ocean and they would be guided to a new life and a new beginning.
Killerwhale Clans live in Killerwhale Villages deep within the ocean; when at home they remove their skins and live as large humans. Mating once for life and thought to be the reincarnation of great chiefs, these majestic animals are the protectors of mankind. While known to capsize canoes and carry the inhabitants to their Killerwhale Village, they are also reputed to act as guides to humans caught within storms.
