“Tales of the whale are common among Northwest Coast Native American tribes. Tsimshian lore says that the orca whale was once a beautiful white wolf, the loveliest of four-legged creatures. The wolf wandered through the world looking for another as beautiful as he. Tired and lonely, the wolf fell into a deep sleep and dreamed of becoming a whale who sings the history of the earth. The wolf rushed to tell Mother Earth of his dream. She turned him into a shiny black whale and painted markings on his side to remind him that he once lived on land as a wolf. Now a Sea Wolf, the whale sank beneath the waters to join the sea creatures and sing a song of history. Some legends say that the orca can change back and forth from whale to wolf.”

PROVENANCE AND ETHICS
Pendleton's family history in Oregon dates back to 1863 when Thomas Kay, a young English weaver opened his own mill in Salem, Oregon. In 1909 Thomas's three grandsons, Clarence Morton Bishop, Royal Thomas Bishop, and Robert Chauncey Bishop opened Pendleton Woolen Mills. Six generations later Pendleton Woolen Mills is still run in Oregon by the Bishop family.
