Mayor John Harwood holds the Eagle Frog bowl given to District of Clearwater by Lieutenant Governor Judith Guichon during her visit to the community on Jan. 28. The silver-plated serving bowl was made out of pewter by the Tsmishian artist, Terry Start of Prince Rupert. The design is representative of an Eagle Frog to signify the connection through the spirit of generosity, grace and kindness. According to information from Guichon’s office, the Eagle is a symbol of power and prestige while his ‘down’ symbolizes peace and friendship. He is highly respected by all who share his environment. The Frog is the voice of the people, especially in our family. He strives for family unity, is one who teaches by example and is sometimes a symbol of innocence. The frog is more ‘us’ and ‘we’ and less ‘I’. “My passion is to express my culture through my art and be part of the revival and continuity of my people’s traditions.” said the artist, Terry Starr.
