"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."
Joe Wilson was born in 1967 into the Cowichan Tribes Native Band and was raised in Duncan, British Columbia, Canada. His interest in art began in elementary school and when he was in grade 12 he made his own silkscreen print editions. Joe first began selling his carvings at age 17 at a local Koksilah store. Since 1984 his work has reflected his search for his own cultural identity in Coast Salish art. His colours are bold and unconventional, yet extremely appealing and rich. His work is not only authentic by native tradition, it is also an artistic communication link between cultures. Joe's talent continue to bring him the recognition that is reserved for outstanding artists.
