8 You've heard of people having sidekicks but have you ever heard of mascots having sidekicks! Mukmuk is not an official mascot; he is a cybernetic mascot. Mukmuk can only be found in cyberspace. Mukmuk loves to eat berries and mountain flowers! Mukmuk’s favourite color is berry orange! Mukmuk loves to sun bathe and hibernate. The name mukmuk comes from the Squamish name “muckamuck” which means “loves to eat”. Like me, Mukmuk is a dreamer too. Did you know that Mukmuk is a Vancouver Island Marmot? They are very rare and endangered. I’m sure you will see Mukmuk at the Olympic games cheering and supporting from cyberspace. People have tried to make him an official Olympic mascot but the online petition failed.

The red represents the Canadian maple leaf. The gold represents the beautiful sunrises in downtown Vancouver.
