Our Logo

Laurence Wilson, from the Nisga’a Nation, designed the Vancouver Aboriginal Child & Family Services Society logo in 1993. The translation for the logo is “Human and Wolf Child”. As the wolf represents family, this is a perfect symbol for our Agency, which has been established to strengthen Aboriginal families. Laurence Wilson was born in 1954 in Nass River, an area located near the North Coast of British Columbia. Laurence apprenticed under Norman Tait for three years, a highly regarded West Coast artist. He also attended the prestigious native art school, ‘Ksan, in 1978. He prefers to use such mediums as wood, canvas and hide in order to produce original paintings, drums and two-dimensional carvings. With his extensive background in design and form informed by his culture, Laurence Wilson has become one of the many prominent Native artists in British Columbia.
