Flight of the Hummingbird is based on an Indigenous parable from the Quechuan people of South America and tells the story of a little hummingbird doing what it can to save its forest home from a great fire.
Yahgulanaas’s text is accompanied by his unique Haida manga art, a blend of the iconic style of the Indigenous people of Haida Gwaii and Asian manga.
