"The first whale came into being when they were carved in wood by Raven and then magically infused with a life force. Killer Whale is a very important crest and mythic being among the coastal groups, and one of the most commonly depicted in the art. Killer Whales are widely accepted as clan ancestors, and are found in shamanic, story and crest art" (Shearar 2000: 62). - Understanding Northwest Coast Art: A guide to Crest, Beings and Symbols
