There are four mosaic medallions near Roche Creek and along the waterfront that honour the importance of salmon as a source of sustenance for the Tsleil-Waututh people. The life cycle of the salmon, shown in vibrant colours, celebrates the interconnectedness of family, community, tradition and culture.
