In Native American culture, the Hummingbird signifies peace, love, joy and happiness. Hummingbirds are depicted in their symbol as a mated pair and represent devotion, eternity and life. The Hummingbird is able to fly backwards, teaching us that we can look back on our past but that we must not dwell on it — we need to move forward. This creature is the one that opens the heart. When the hurt that caused us to close our hearts gets a chance to heal, our hearts are free to open again. Many Native Americans see the Hummingbird as a symbol of good luck.

Randy Wisla himself describes Hummingbirds as “joyful messengers who represent peace, affection and good fortune. The Hummingbird is a living rainbow that captures the sunlight and turns it into a jewel on its wings, signifying love, beauty and healing.”

The Returning of the Salmon Velura™ Throw blanket features a print by acclaimed Musqueam Nation artist and weaver Debra Sparrow.

This wonderfully unique throw in vibrant colors will add a touch of culture to any room.

Returning of the Salmon

Long before humans came to be, the animals in the water frolicked together near the mouth of the Fraser River. Each year, the salmon journeyed out to sea and back to the same river, but they did not swim up the river, as their way was blocked by killer whales.

Then one year a baby salmon made friends with an otter. The otter picked up the baby salmon and, resting it on her stomach, began to swim up the river. As soon as the mother salmon noticed her baby was missing, she followed the otter up the river, swimming past the killer whales. The whole school of salmon followed her. At last the otter stopped and, when all the salmon caught up, this became their final spawning grounds.

To this day, salmon return with uncanny precision to the natal river where they were born, and even to the very spawning ground of their birth. For this reason, they represent determination, intuition and respect for tradition to the Musqueam people.

Le retour des saumons

Bien avant la venue de l’homme, les animaux marins s’ébattaient ensemble près de l’embouchure du fleuve Fraser. Chaque année, ils se dirigeaient vers la mer sans toutefois remonter le fleuve parce que les épaulards leur bloquaient la voie.

Puis, un jour, un saumoneau se lia d’amitié avec une loutre. Celle-ci saisit le poisson et, après l’avoir placé sur son ventre, elle se mit à remonter le fleuve. Dès que la mère du petit saumon constata sa disparition, elle pourchassa la loutre dans le fleuve en passant outre les épaulards. Le banc de saumon au complet la suivit. Enfin, lorsque la loutre s’arrêta et que tous les saumons la rejoignirent, cet endroit devint leur frayère.

À ce jour, les saumons reviennent avec une mystérieuse précision vers le fleuve où ils sont nés, voire à l’endroit même de leur naissance. C’est pour cette raison qu’ils signifient détermination, intuition et respect pour la bande de Musqueam.
