The North Star is symbolic of awakening, light, and wisdom. It is the guiding light - especially in these dark times - and represents our unified direction for goodness. The 7 rays of the North Star represent the 7 generations we fight to protect. The Orca whales represent the coming together of many peoples. Killer whales are the guardians and protectors of the waters, and guardians of travelers at sea. Orca whales are a symbol of unity and of goodness.
