​OUR LOGO
The Logo features a Hoatzin in flight that is centered in a medicine wheel.
The Hoatzin is a primitive tropical bird which is the last surviving member of a bird line that dates back 64 million years. The Hoatzin possesses a remarkable coping skill which enables it to thrive in large colonies. It represent families who overcome obstacles despite the odds. 
The medicine wheel is a rich and ancient symbol of mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual balance.  Many  Native Americans across the US and Canada continue to utilize this  dynamic representations of the Four Directions.
