Wasco is a sea wolf, a mythological being which appears in Haida legend mixing elements of both whale and wolf. It is said, wolves who were hunting whales in the ocean were caught in a fog and could not find their way back to shore. They decided to remain at sea and became Wasco’s. As they are both wolves and whales they represent strong family ties, community, teamwork and strength.
