SKU: Hamumu Category:

Hamumu is Kwak’wala for butterfly. In this drum design is a butterfly that is a crest worn by the late hereditary chief Arthur Dick, who lived in Alert Bay, and who passed away May 29,1997. He was a man of greatness in my eyes. I marveled at how he was in relationship to his family, his children, his grandchildren, his great-grandchildren and his many, many relations. His family was very important to him and he exhibited his caring in many loving ways. He was very proud of his family.

Although he had a grade-two education, he was successful, a hard worker and a self-taught man. This design is a way to show respect to Dayu (Arthur Dick) and his family. The face with a teardrop represents the grieving of the loss of a great man. The heart in the design is the love I feel for Dayu and the legacy he has left behind. The swirls in the design represent movement from this place to the next and beyond to places we do not understand. Halakasla Dayu (Goodbye Dayu).”
