The story of Orca as told by the Haida of British Columbia, Canada

Welcome />Once a man found two wolf pups on the beach. He took them home and raised them. When the pups had grown, they would swim out into the ocean, kill a whale, and bring it to shore for the people to eat. Each day they did this until there was too much meat to eat and it began to spoil. When the Great Above Person saw this waste he made a fog and the wolves could not find whales to kill nor find their way back to shore. They had to remain at sea. Those wolves became seawolves (Orca).
