There are four clans in Gitxaala, my home village, also known as Kitkatla, B.C. All children are born into the clan of the mother. I was born Eagle, the first of my series of the four clans, or tribes as they are known at home.

My father, Art Vickers, was born under the Orca totem. We grew up loving to see the dorsal fins of the Orca as they came by to visit us in the village. There are many stories and examples of the #1 predator across the oceans of this world. I continue to be thrilled by an Orca Dorsal as it breaks the ocean surface.
