For many Northwest Coast People, Orcas protect those who travel away from home, and lead them back when the time comes. The Killer Whales live like wolves and raise each child with care. They will often stay their whole life with the same pod. Like wolves they also travel in large groups of families, working together to protect all members of their pod. That is why the are often seen as the Wolves of the Sea.
