The Hummingbird Symbol in First Nations Culture
The Native Hummingbird Symbol is representative of the miracle of living and positivity. Hummingbirds in native culture are bringers of peace, healers of your body and soul and a guide through challenges in life. Hummingbirds are very independent and seem to have an unlimited energy supply.
