Artist's Description

Native First Nations legend tells of a time when Earth was covered in ice. Raven the Creator changed the land to a beautiful green. But to remind us of when Earth was pure, clean and covered with snow and ice, Raven went among the black bear and turned every tenth bear white.

That is the Legend of Spirit Bear. And this legend lives on…

Along the remote coast of British Columbia in western Canada there lies the Great Bear Rainforest, one of the largest areas of unspoiled temperate rainforest left in the world. It’s here that a mysterious black bear (Ursus americanus kermodei) walks out of ancient legend to fish secluded streams and call these special forests home. To many he’s known as Kermode Bear. But I prefer his ancestral Tsimshian name, mooksgm’ol. He is, undoubtedly, The Spirit Bear.

August 2011 footnote I encourage you to read National Geographic Magazine’s August issue which has two feature articles on this grand creature and his land. First is the cover story The Wildest Place in North America – Land of the Spirit Bear. Second story educates us about threats to his habitat in Pipeline Through Paradise.
