Canadian Native Designs
Traditional native designs form an integral part of Canadiana. We are pleased to offer the following products for your enjoyment. Please note that for some products such as the Inukshuks made by Wee Gates, part of the proceeds are returned directly to the native communities. We try and support local as much as possible and of course Canada as a whole.
The Bear is a symbol of great self awareness and the ability to deliberate about choices or actions. We look to the Bear to show us how to fish the salmon and collect the berries. The Bear symbolizes family and strength.
The Bear in Northwest West Coastal Native Culture represents strength and learned humility through motherhood and teaching and is an important family crest associated with family and children. Sometime referred to as the protector of the animal kingdom and forests, the Bear is a well respected member of the community and can sometimes be referred to as an elder or a person that has passed on to a new life.
