Orcas symbolize family, romance, longevity, harmony, travel, community and protection. For the Haida, Sgaana xaaydagaay, the killer whale people, are among the most powerful of the people from the sea. Stories tell of Haida ancestors putting on skins of killer whales to enter the realm of the spirit world, where killer whale people and humans visit, communicate and feast together.
