First Nations Artist Noel Brown Honours The NightOwls With Logo

Published

on

The distinctive owl in Brown’s artwork clearly defines what a grey owl symbolizes in the Coast Salish culture — a messenger, with a nasty streak. The dialect combines two words, snet and spulqwitth’e’, to form NightOwls.

“What a pleasure it has been to work with Noel, and with representatives of Chief Wyse in developing this Snuneymuxw logo,” said Jim Swanson, Managing Partner/GM of the NightOwls. “Those who saw our team announcement, and the naming unveiling, have seen how important this is to us, and we think this amazing logo will be heralded by all who see it as a tremendous addition as the team builds a history in this region.

“Working with Councillor Billy Yoachim, a long-time friend and competitor in baseball, as we commissioned this logo with Noel, was a truly delightful part of bringing this team to fruition.”

The garments were produced by Island Print Group, which will be the official merchandise company of the Nanaimo NightOwls. More Snuneymuxw NightOwls items will be available as the team expand all merchandise offerings.

The Coast Salish peoples have a proud history as a vibrant group located in the Gulf Islands, eastern coast of Vancouver Island, and the Fraser River delta, encompassing the rich resources of the Salish Sea.
