Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas on Orcinus Orca SKAAnaa
Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas is a contemporary artist whose wide-ranging artistic practice explores themes of identity, environmentalism and the human condition. Influenced by both Haida iconography and contemporary Asian visual culture, he has created an artistic practice that crosses diverse cultures, generations, and disciplines in search of accessibility and engagement as a counterpoint to stratification and isolation.   His mural titled Orcinus Orca SKAAnaa is included in the Royal BC Museum feature exhibition Orcas: Our Shared Future, which presents the stories and science that surround the magnificent orca, spirit of BC’s wild coast and apex predator of all oceans.   Orcas: Our Shared Future weaves the currents of ecological interests, popular culture and Indigenous beliefs to gain a new appreciation of these sophisticated animals, long feared in Western cultures as “killer whales.”
