It's said that every living creature has a human inside of them. Alaskan native art depicts the human transforming out of the animal. The orca was the Alaskan native's grim reaper. Whenever they would come near the village, a villager would die, and the orca's would take their spirit with them. I'm thinking of having this tattooed on my back :)

Nice job Trigger. I love the Tlingit art and the Athabascans. This well done.

interesting, strange belief they have/had... but I do believe the soul of every living thing is equal in that it needs attention, love, sunlight, water and sustenance to survive
