A Gallery of the Artists of Kuper Island, BC, Canada

Penelakut (formerly Kuper) Island belongs to the Penelakut First Nations Tribe, and is located in the southern Gulf Islands chain in the Strait of Georgia, off the east coast of Vancouver Island. There are approximately 300 band members who live here on-reserve and at the Tsussie Rd. Reserve in Westholme, and there are approximately 500 members who live off-reserve lands. The Penelakut are part of the Coast Salish (Salishan) linguistic group, and share in that extensive cultural heritage. For a very brief look at some of the historical background of Coast Salish Art, go to the History page.

To view a representative sampling of the work of various artists, go to the Gallery page.
