"The Pacific Tree Frog's habitat ranges from Northern California to Southern Alaska. It is known for croaking loudly when spring begins. This is a sign to the Coast Salish of Vancouver Island that it's time to end the winter ceremonies and prepare for the hunting and fishing season. According to Northwest Coast culture, the Frog is believed to inhabit the human, as well as the spirit world. As such, Frog is the communicator between the two worlds." - Artist Statement
