dragonfly form line design

The native use of the beautiful dragonfly can be found in a variety of tribal art forms across the country. The ovoid design was selected to honor the coastal people. Look to the east, there live the people of the corn who cultivated the land and where the sun rises each morning. To the west live the people of the sea who sustained themselves with gifts of the ocean and where the sun rests each evening. The circle holding these traditions symbolizes the oneness of all peoples and the dragonfly carries the message of peace and inspiration from the spirit realms.
