Known as the “Lord of the Ocean” the Killer Whale is said to the be the guardian of the sea. This animal symbolized family, harmony, longevity, community and protection. The Killer Whale spirit is said to protect those who travel away from home, and will always lead them back. The Killer Whales, like wolves, mate for life and raise each child with care. They travel in large groups of families, working together to protect all members of their pod.
