Hummingbird Youth T-Shirt (Sizes 8–12)
Designed by Dene artist John Velten, this 100% cotton t-shirt, exclusively available at MOA, adds a sense of harmony to any wardrobe. Hummingbirds are a symbol of joy and healing and are known as the messenger of good news. “The hummingbird represents the flourishing and light-hearted take I’ve had towards learning more about who I am and where we reside,” says John, one of the co-winners of the MOA Shop’s 6th annual Emerging Indigenous Artist Contest. He uses Northwest Coast formline design to express his life experiences.
