The Reverse Features:
In ancient times, a great flood happened that threatened the survival of the Squamish people. The people banded together in canoes, and tied their canoes to En cheki - now called Mount Garibaldi - so they would not drift away. An eagle caught salmon and dropped the fish into the canoes, giving the Squamish people sustenance and ensuring their survival. The design is an artistic eagle and salmon design.
