On the wolf, from Cheryl Shearer’s Understanding Northwest Coast Art:
People respect the wolf for its strength, agility, intelligence and capacity for devotion. The wolf’s vocal range and communicative powers are impressive, and the Northwest Coast peoples traditionally believe in the potency and magic of speech and song. Wolf is sometimes an agent of transformation and is also a popular figure in crest, story and shamanic art.
