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.”
Please Note: Designs can be embroidered onto any color blanket available.

About The Artist:
Randy Wisla, proud member of the Carrier Nation of North Central British Columbia, finds personal strength and inspiration from his culture and his elders. As the son of established Northwest Coast Native carver Charles Harper, he developed his creative skills early in life by sketching with pencils and pastels. The process of deconstructing the world and reconstructing it through a piece of art was taught to Randy through his apprenticeship with his father. For Randy, there are no creative limits to his work as an artist.
