This carved glass mural, My People Will Rise Up - like a thunderbird from the sea, is inspired by Chief Dan George's words spoken on the 100 year centennial of Canada as a nation in 1967. The words are brought to life using imagery inspired by the petroglyphs found up and down the west coast, markers of ancient aboriginal presence.

Engraved images carved into bluestone suggest fragments of a magnificent tree, shadows of the Tree of Knowledge. Dappled amongst the imagery are literary quotes personally selected by library donors. Each piece contributes to the whole, while remaining individual - the imprint of the community on the plaza.
