Loyalty, Family, Ritual Agility
Of all the animals, Wolf has the strongest supranational powers. Through his intelligence, he warned others of the great flood. Wolves are the most proficient hunters of all the land animals and are highly respected for their ability. Since this ability can be conferred on people, they are often sought after as spirit aids by Natives hunters. Wolves mate for life and are a symbol of togetherness and communication.

The significance of the Eagle in many First Nations stories is that Eagle is used to represent perception and spiritual connection. Eagle feathers and down are sacred: traditionally Shamans believed in their healing powers and used them in a variety of ceremonial and ritual contexts such as honouring a respected guest. Eagle's down symbolized good luck, piece, welcome and friendship.
Mike did his first fashion with his Jaada Apparel for the closing ceremony for CHRA conference in Victoria B.C. This was very well received at the show.
