T´łisala - Sun
The Sun is believed to be a man who came to earth from the heavens and became the first ancestor to a number of Kwakwaka’wakw clans. These people use the sun and his mask as their crest. One legend says this man wears abalone-shell earrings and when he walks across the sky, his abalone-shell earrings catch the light and give daylight to the world.
