Killer Whale

Killer Whales or Orcas symbolize love of all types, representing romance, loyalty and close ties between family and friends. It offers protection to travelers far from home, helping to guide your journey back. In myth the Orca is closely linked to humans; it is said that those lost at sea are transformed into these whales and have gone to live in a underwater village. Seen as the guardian of the ocean, the Orca is a strong spirit, which symbolizes longevity, resiliency and knowing that you are not alone.


The Thunderbird represents protection, power, and strength. He is considered the strongest of the totem animals, possessing supernatural power and credited with creating storms. When he blinks, lighting comes out of his eyes, and when he flaps his wings, thunder roars. He hunts and eats whales by using the two lightning snakes kept under his wings.

John Lancaster

John Lancaster was born in Alert Bay, British Columbia, Canada, which is a fishing village located along the northeastern coast of Vancouver Island. He is a member of the Kwakwaka'wakw Nation. John takes the Wolf, revered as the powerful hunter on land, and the Sun, an element that exists in many legends, as his family crest symbols.

John Lancaster has been making First Nations design jewelry since 1986 and notes that his cousin Alfred Seaweed was instrumental in teaching him the skills of silver and gold jewelry carving. Coming from a family of expert goldsmiths, John’s skills and expertise is revealed in the beautiful jewelry he creates. His designs depict traditional Kwagiulth motifs and legendary creatures.

Presently, residing in Victoria on Vancouver Island to be near his family and close to his roots, he is one of many Northwest Native artists who are preserving their heritage through artwork.
