The Hummingbird - The Hummingbird teaches you to appreciate and love the miracle of living, and to help you focus on the positivity in your life. They are messengers of peace. They heal your body and soul, and guide you through life’s challenges. Hummingbirds are very independent and seem to have an unlimited energy supply. They symbolize wonder and beauty.
A legend from the Kwakwaka'wakw, says that Dzunuk'wa (the mythic guardian of the mountains and Wild Woman of the Woods) loved this little bird so much, she let him nest in her hair. This made the Hummingbird look like a jewel. Of all the birds, they are the most talented flyers. They can hover in one place, fly sideways, backwards and forwards. They teach us to look back to our past, but not to dwell, instead to move forward. As well, the Hummingbirds tell us to savor every sweet moment as they do when hovering over each flower. Native Americans believe that it brings luck to see a Hummingbird before major events, such as long hunting trips or traveling to other villages.
