Artist Statement : "The Canadian Goose in the dawn of the day flaps his wings as if to stretch. In the body of the goose is the Chief, and in the wing is the Chief's first wife. This design shows the birth of a new boy born of the Goose Clan, which is the mother's clan. He wears the crest - The Stretching Gander at Dawn - for life." - Robert Sebastian
