Darcy Luke is a Ktunaxa artist. The Ktunaxa people centre around the headwaters of the Columbia River in what is now known as the East Kootenay region of British Columbia, Canada.
Darcy was chosen to represent her Nation in creating one of the three distinctive salmon designs that make up our beautiful Bringing the Salmon home logo. Darcy created the mother chinook that symbolizes the life-giving generational legacy of salmon.
Darcy says: “I have been creating art since I was very young, and I started doing commissioned work since I was 15 years old. Most of my commissioned works have been murals and canvas paintings. I have created logos in the past, and have recently been getting into digital artworks. I currently work for the Ktunaxa Nation Council part time while I attend post secondary education; in this position I have been creating artistic cultural resources that will assist Ktunaxa children and adults in learning the language.”
