Killer Whale Spirit Bead

As one of the most recognized symbols of the West Coast of British Columbia, the Killer Whale is rich in Native lore, with many legends focusing on this majestic animal. The Killer Whale is a popular symbol for romance as they mate for life. The Killer Whale, like the Wolf, stays with its family and travels in large pods. Indeed, the Killer Whale is said to have originated from a single great white wolf that leaped into the sea and transformed itself into a Killer Whale. This is why they have the white markings on their sides, travel in packs and are such skilled hunters.
