Komokwa means “Wealthy One” and is the mythical King of the Supernatural Undersea World. He is also called the Copper Maker.
The King or Guardian of the Sea is a very powerful and wealthy ruler who lives in a great House made of copper under the sea, filled with food and treasures. It is said that he is the master and protector of the seals and has live sea lions as house posts that guard the entrance.
As the King of the Undersea World many of the sea creators like octopods, killer whales, loons, seals, sea lions, and sculpins are closely associated with him. You will very often find representations of these creators attached to the image of Komokwa.
