In Native American Cultures, the Tlingit, Nootka, and Haida tribes, the whale is seen as a symbol of both strength and speed. The Maori of New Zealand, the whale is the most important animal in their life. It is not only a symbol of speed and strength, but also, success, confidence, sensitivity, protection, good luck and the bond between animals and humans. Whales are and always have been an important religious symbol. In fact, in Tibet, many Buddha statues also feature a whale. Whales are incredibly graceful, powerful, beautiful, and mystifying creatures. Long live the whales, let’s keep our oceans clean!
