Yágis

” ’Yágis swallowing an oil tanker trespassing in Heiltsuk waters is the response of the Heiltsuk Nation to the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline and to oil tanker traffic in their territories. The mask was created by ’Nusí, Heiltsuk artist and embodies the ancient teachings of the Heiltsuk to protect their land and seas against such perils as pipelines and oil tanker traffic in their waters”.  http://aboriginal.ubc.ca/2013/01/02/one-mind-one-heart-exhibit-at-moa/
