  • Sisiutl
    The sea monster, Sisiutl, roamed the land and sea of the Kwakiutl and Nootka peoples. It had two heads, and could transform itself into different sizes and shapes. It was believed that anyone viewing a Sisiutl would be turned to stone, but if a warrior could obtain Sisiutl blood and rub it on his skin, it would render his skin impenetrable to enemy weapons. Although a ferocious creature, to the Northwest Coast peoples it represented great power and protection from evil spirits. The Sisiutl was often painted on the front of longhouses, facing the sea, to ward off enemies.
