Hot Pad- Hummingbird Blue
Hummingbird designed by Tsimshian artist Bill Helin. Hummingbirds are nectarivores and are found in North and South America. In Northwest coast aboriginal lore they symbolize beauty, intelligence and love. They are messengers of joy and their ability to hover back and forth and move swiftly is believed to be a skill for guiding the people- as such their appearance before a hunt is regarded as a positive sign.
