One legend of the Killer Whale (Orca) is it was once a supernatural
white Wolf that dove into the sea and was transformed into a Whale,
then Mother Earth painted the markings on the side of the Killer Whale
as a reminder it was once a member of the Wolf family. The
Killer Whales and Wolves do share similar traits, they stay and hunt in
family groups, a family of Wolves is called a pack and a family of Killer
Whales is called a pod. Also, like Wolves, Killer Whales
are said to mate for life.

of the Hawaiian Islands below the price list.

A legend about the Creation of the Hawaiian Islands tells about Maui,
the Hawaiian demigod, creating the Hawaiian chain of Islands by dragging
his fish hook on the ocean floor. He convinced his unsuspecting brothers
in the canoe to paddle furiously by fooling them that he had caught a great
fish. With their efforts, Maui's mighty fish hook, dragged the land mass
out of the ocean and the Hawaiian Islands were born.
