The hummingbird is a small but powerful life force. It symbolizes healing and the connection that we have to the beyond. In order to maintain the connection to our relatives and loved ones that have travelled on to the spirit world we honour the messengers that bring us peace and hope. 

We look to the light in search of them - just as the hummingbirds face towards the symbol of the sun and moon, and leave a trail of energy behind them as they flutter into the sky. 

This blanket design is a warm reminder that those of our past are always with us in spirit, let us honour them.


30 inches x 40 inches

About the artist Emily Kewageshig

Saugeen First Nation

Emily Kewageshig is an Anishnaabe artist and visual storyteller from Saugeen First Nation No. 29. With a fine arts education from both Sheridan College and OCAD University (Ontario College of Art and Design), Kewageshig finds inspiration from artists such as Norval Morrisseau and Daphne Odjig. Exploring themes of birth, death, and rebirth in her work, she speaks to the interconnection and cyclical patterns of life. While using both traditional painting techniques and contemporary digital methods, Kewageshig creates anything from large scale murals, to book illustrations, and digital designs. The subjects explored in her work are closely intertwined in her cultural teachings and personal lived experiences. Kewageshig creates artwork in her own  personnel practice and for various collaborations with the aim to highlight Indigenous knowledge and culture, commissioned and featured by organisations such as CBC and Purlator. 

"Artists are the voices of communities," noted Kewageshig, adding, "Artists inspire and uplift us all. Art is critical in creating social change."
