This design depicts the legend of a hummingbird, who,
while out gathering nectar from flowers, encountered a bear. This bear was
something of a bully, and wouldn’t allow the hummingbird to get near the
flowers. Hummingbird tried again and again but the bear blocked her every time.
Frustrated, the hummingbird gathered some twigs and flew inside the bear’s nose
and down into his stomach, where she used the twigs to start a fire and then
flew back outside. With smoke wafting from his nose and mouth, the bear ran away
into the forest and never bothered hummingbird again. This legend teaches us
that even great obstacles can be overcome.
"They made us many
promises, more than I can remember. But they kept but one: They promised to
take our land, and they took it." Chief Red
