First nations artist Alano Edzerza has made his mark on the Olympics with his designs appearing on the uniforms of Team Netherlands for the Olympics and at Canada Hockey Place.

Edzerza, who is well-known for working in a variety of media, created an "artful and spiritual interpretation of the Eagle's wings" on the sleeves of the uniforms to bring the team luck. The Dutch had snagged six medals by Wednesday morning, including three golds.
