Details

Quwut Sun This contemporary Coast Salish sun design is an attempt to mediate between the Hul'qumi'num language (the language of the Cowichan Tribes) and English. There have been various anglecized spellings of this Hul'qumi'num toponym (place name), such as "Cowichan," "Khowutzun," and the currently accepted "Quwutsun." This Hul'qumi'num term has been simplified and misinterpreted as meaning "The Warm Land," when it should be more correctly interpreted as meaning "warmed by the sun," or "basking in the sun with your back turned to the sun." The four eclipsed suns surrounding the central sun symbolize the darkness of ignorance blocking Daylight, a powerful source of truth. --lessLIE
