"The rufous hummingbird is the most common species in the region, and in some areas, these tiny, active, well-loved birds are year-round inhabitants. Hummingbirds nest in the unruly hair of Dzunuk'wa, the Wild Woman of the Woods, and fly around here as she walks through the forest. [Hummingbird] is not traditionally a major motif in the art. Its popularity today indicates that it has become a very important symbol of love and beauty. Hummingbirds are identified by a long, narrow beak, prominent eyes; a small head, and the presence of flowers"" (Shearar 2000: 58). - Understanding Northwest Coast Art: A Guide to Beings and Symbols
