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. This tiny bird is also called "Sah Sen" and is considered good luck, especially if seen before a major event.
Bill is the son of Chief Hy’semass of the Gitgeese tribe from Lax Kw Alaams, B.C. Bill also trained at K’San, B.C.’s well-known Indian Carving School and attended the Gemology Institute of America in California. A versatile artist, Bill enjoys painting, woodcarving and engraving. Whether he works in gold, silver, or on canvas, the legends of his ancestor come alive again. Bill’s designs have been in space-as insignias on the uniforms of the Canadian astronauts aboard the Space Shuttle flight in April 1996.
