Haida Indian Orca Killer Whale

The Northwest Coast Haida Indian orca killer whale is part of a legend where it is a whale chief with a raven sitting on top of its dorsal fin. This is why sometimes we see in Northwest Coast Haida Indian art there is an orca killer whale with a raven together. Sometimes the raven is depicted as part of the orca's fin. For more background information on this animal represented in art, see Northwest Indian Orca Killer Whale.
