Blankets have always been an integral part of North American life, from their early use as clothing and shelter to their trading value as a form of barter exchange. In honor of these traditions, Kanata has recreated these Tsimshian Life crest designs by Bill Helin on our ultra-soft Velura™ throw.

In Tsimshian culture, each symbol on the Bill Helin Printed Velura™ Throw has powerful meanings:

The Eagle is a symbol of power and prestige, peace and friendship. He is highly respected by all who share his environment.

The Raven was the first symbol and crest of the Indigenous Peoples of the Northwest Coast. As the Creator’s assistant, he created all things that exist — with mysterious trickery. This mystical bird is a symbol of prestige, a cultural hero.

The Wolf is the prowler of the night, traveling in packs to keep strong and to support each other. Because of his hunting prowess, many Indigenous Peoples have tried to assume the spirit of the wolf to enhance their own hunting prowess and senses for the wilderness. The Wolf is given to show respect; it symbolizes supporting one another as within a relationship, a team or a family.

The Orca has always been regarded with respect and awe by the Indigenous Peoples of the Northwest Coast. He is the subject of many stories. Traditions encourage living in harmony with these mammals. The Orca is given to show respect and awe. It’s the symbol you’d give to someone who brings harmony to your life. It is a popular symbol for romance, as Orcas mate for life.

Dans la culture Tsimshian, chaque symbole a des significations puissantes:

L’Aigle est un symbole de pouvoir et de prestige, de paix et d’amitié. Il est très respecté par tous ceux qui partagent son environnement.

Le Corbeau a été le premier symbole et le premier emblème des peuples autochtones de la côte Nord-Ouest. En tant qu’assistant du Créateur, il a créé tout ce qui existe – par la ruse et la supercherie, dans une aura de mystère. Cet oiseau mystique est un symbole de prestige et un véritable héros culturel.

Le Loup est le rôdeur de la nuit. Il vit et chasse en meute pour faire valoir sa force et s’appuyer sur les autres. Le Loup est un symbole de respect; il symbolise aussi le soutien mutuel au sein d’une relation, d’une équipe ou d’une famille.

L’Orque a toujours été considéré avec respect et admiration par les peuples autochtones de la côte Nord-Ouest. Il appartient au monde du fantastique et de la superstition. Il représente les personnes qui contribuent à rendre votre vie harmonieuse. C’est également le symbole de la romance, car les orques s’accouplent pour la vie.
