Ma-Ma-Tii (Little Bird)



Red cedar, bark, twine

Nuu-Chah-Nulth (Hesquiaht)

We are the very smallest part of nature. In this universe, we are like little pets to nature. As human beings, we are so arrogant. We feel that we can take from mother earth until it is all gone. We over use and overdo. We alter and change nature by extracting resources. We always go overboard. We have yet to give back forgotten the art of giving. We have in a good way to nature. The birds of the forest are messengers. If we don’t listen and hear them, something big and unforgiving will come our way in a vengeance. When the singing birds are gone, we are no more.
