With open arms, an approximately 5.5-metre Coast Salish Welcome Figure now greets all who enter Ecole Argyle Secondary in North Vancouver.

The Welcome Figure is carved from a red cedar log estimated to be more than 200 years old sourced from the Squamish Valley forest and donated by Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) Nation.

The striking cedar sculpture, at the front entrance of the new school, at 1131 Frederick Rd. in Lynn Valley, was installed in August to acknowledge the school sits on the unceded territories of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
