The Humming Bird or Colibrí in Spanish

Hummingbirds are viewed very positively in Native American tribes. They are associated with beauty, harmony, industriousness, and integrity.

In legends, Hummingbird is often portrayed as a healer or a spirit being who helps people in need.


Seeing a hummingbird is a sign of good luck in many Native American tribes, especially Northwest Coast tribes. In ancient Mexico, hummingbirds were considered sacred and associated with royalty and warriors; the Aztec God Huitzilopochtli, Patron God of the Aztec capital Tenochtitlan, had the hummingbird as his divine animal and was sometimes depicted in hummingbird form in traditional Aztec art.


In some cultures, hummingbirds are believed to be messengers that carry positive messages. If you ever see a hummingbird, give him the positive message you want to send.
