"The Hummingbird is a symbol of good luck and good fortune. It was considered a positive sign to spot a hummingbird just prior to some major event such as hunting or traveling to another village. The abilities of the Hummingbird to hover and move back and forth at great speeds are seen as skills that guide the people. For example, if the people fall behind, the Hummingbird can easily back up to keep pace. The Hummingbird design is a well respected symbol."
