Sterling silver killer whale charm. The killer whales or Orcas are one of the most recognizable icons of the species and are a symbol of power and strength. Catching a glimpse of one is not only breathtaking but also a symbol of monumental connection. Some Native American tribes, such as the Tlingit, view the killer whale as a special protector of humankind, never to be hunted. Meanwhile the Kwakiutl tribes believed that the souls of marine hunters turned into killer whales upon their death. For this reason, there were a number of special rituals regarding the killing of a killer whale, so that its spirit could be reborn as a human once again.
