Orcas: Spirits of the Coast Boxed Notecards
Orcas are complex social beings. Long feared in settler cultures as “killer whales” and respected and honored by Indigenous cultures, these enigmatic animals have a culture and language all their own. As they journey across the oceans that connect our ever-changing world, Orcas shape us as much as our actions impact them.
This boxed notecard set brings together the works of four diverse artists. They imagine and interpret the magic, myths, and ecology—present and future—of these spirited creatures.
Contains five each of the following notecards:
Santiago X, Orca Futurescape
Christian Geissler, Small Craft Warning
Hale Kailiehu, ‘Ālaluka
Fanny Aïshaa, The Joy of Coming Home
20 blank notecards (5 each of 4 designs) with envelopes in a decorative box
