The Mapmaker’s Soul: Captain Vancouver’s Journals through an Indigenous Perspective

Coast Salish artist Wade Baker and Mary Tasi recently published a groundbreaking book called The Hidden Journals: Captain Vancouver & His Mapmaker. The book is a culmination of ten years of research and gathering of oral stories and personal histories and explores the records of Captain Vancouver’s travels that were airbrushed out of the official accounts. Why was this such a mystery? Join Wade and Mary for this illustrated lecture as they explore these stories from an Indigenous perspective and share their remarkable journey of discovery.
