Many generations ago a young man was fishing between the waters of Hesquiaht and Nootka Island when he saw something huge swimming through the ocean. The next day a second one was spotted, so now there was a female and a male. The fisherman saw them flying through the water beside his boat but when he reached down to touch them, they dove deeply down and away. These were the giant sea turtles that appeared when trade winds and warm currents came our way.
