The Killerwhale tribe can be found in the Gitxsan (though called Fireweed Clan), Nisga'a, Tsimshian, and Tlingit to name a few. The Killerwhale is a very important crest and mythic being to each group and is referenced in our stories and art. The Killerwhale is recognized as clan ancestors and reincarnated chiefs. They are associated with strength, dignity, prosperity, and longevity. 

 

Some believe that Killerwhales inhabit ancient villages deep in the ocean and shed their black and white skins and live as humans there. In some cultures, when a chief dies, Killerwhales will come close to shore to carry the chief's spirit. 

 

Like the wolf, the Killerwhale are familial and are always seen in pods. The Killerwhale is also known as Protector of the Sea and Sea Wolf. This is why I have a 'watcher' in my killerwhales' dorsal fin and a wolf within its' body.
