Hummingbird Designed by Bill Helin of the Tsimshian Nation.
“Hummingbirds are nectarivores and are found in North and South America. In Northwest coast aboriginal lore they symbolize beauty, intelligence, and love. They are messangers 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.”

Tsimshian native artist Bill Helin enjoys a very rewarding career as a creative gold engraver, painter, woodcarver, and book illustrator. He loves to paint mythological images to educate people on the history of the Tsimshian nation and the many stories passed down through his ancestors. His greatest passion however, is to spiritually represent and bond individuals together through the use of native Life Crest symbols. The art of Bill Helin is reproduced in collaboration with the artist and royalties are paid to the artist on each item sold.
