Dragonfly is correlated with medicine, and is the only insect among the Haida to feature as a family crest. Dragonfly is associated with motion and change, and has recently become a popular motif in northwest coast indigenous art.


Dragonfly is quite easy to recognize, due to the long narrow body, narrow wings, and large, roundish eyes.​
