The Endeavour logo is representative of our Pacific Northwest heritage. It is a Tsimshian form-line drawing which represents a killer whale. The elements of the whale have been fashioned into a circular emblem that may have been used on a drum head. We have identified this image in various trade goods sold throughout Alaska.

HM Bark Endeavour sailed from Plymouth, England in 1768 carrying Captain James T. Cook on one of the most famous voyages of discovery in history. Cook’s resilience in the face of adversity is forever linked with the name Endeavour. NASA acknowledged that spirit by naming its fifth shuttle Endeavour, launching STS-49, its first mission in 1992.
