About SC2003 Logo

About the SC2003 logo: “Firebird” was created by David Moreno, a student at the Institute for American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, and was selected as the winning design in a competition to create a symbol for SC2003. In the culture of Moreno’s Pascua Yaqui tribe of Arizona, birds are messengers of the spirits. His depiction of this mythological firebird is derived from the hummingbird and from the Meso-American feathered serpent god Quetzalcoatl.
