The Hummingbird is the joyful messenger and a symbol of health. When a Hummingbird appears, healing will follow.
The Eagle is a symbol of pride and friendship. Eagle feathers are given as gifts to symbolize honour and respect for accomplishments and displays of courage and wisdom. Because Eagles mate for life, they are also admired for their long term commitments.

Salmon are Supernatural beings who give up their life to feed our people. We hold them in high esteem and honour their return every year.
