The Orca is an important medicine animal to the Native American tribes of the Northwest Coast.
The Native Orca Symbol or Killer Whale symbolizes family, romance, longevity, harmony, travel, community and protection. He is said to protect those who travel away from home, and to lead them back when the time comes. Orcas will often stay their whole life with the same pod and raise each calf with care. Orcas travel in large family groups, working together to protect all members of their pod.
When a Killer Whale is seen offshore, he is believed to be a deceased human or chief trying to communicate with loved ones. Some tribes believe that Orcas are reincarnations of their former chiefs lost at sea.
Regardless of your beliefs, seeing one of these powerful and majestic creatures in the wild is a magical experience.
