Chemainus has long been a destination for seafaring peoples, originally with the Coastal Salish First Nations, to the first European explorers between the 1770s and 1800, and the first settlers who arrived in the late 1850s. To celebrate those who have had a long association with the coastal waters and those who are still arriving, the Municipality of North Cowichan asked Chemainus Festival of Murals Society curator Cim MacDonald to create a compass at Kin Beach.
