Meaning of the Love Symbol

Native American Indians were a deeply spiritual people and they communicated their history, thoughts, ideas and dreams from generation to generation through symbols. There was not a Native American Love symbol. It is such a difficult symbol to convey, however, the symbols of friendship and harmony are the closest symbols to convey the concept of love.

Native American symbols are generally geometric portrayals of celestial bodies, natural phenomena and animal designs. They were not used to convey a strong emotional feeling such as love. The Hummingbird symbol represented mated pairs and stood as a symbol of love, happiness and devotion. Hummingbirds are always depicted in their symbol as a mated pair as a symbol of love, devotion, permanence, eternity and life cycles. Because of its speed, the hummingbird is known as a messenger and stopper of time. The idea of 'time standing still' is often related to a couple in the first months of knowing each other and falling in love. The hummingbird is remarkably brave and  are not afraid of any predators - love conquers all. The Hummingbird tell us to savour every sweet moment as they do when hovering over each flower, another analogy for love. Native Americans believe that it brings good luck to see a Hummingbird before major events.
