In 1970, a young orca whale was captured off the coast of Washington. She was called “Tokitae” and later “Lolita” and currently resides at the Seaquarium in Miami, Florida. The whale’s name is actually Sk’aliCh’elh-tenaut, according to the Lummi Nation. The tribe considers her part of their family and they want to bring her home. Lummi council member Freddie Lane joins us to talk about the cross-country trip he’s been on with an orca totem pole to raise awareness about the whale and the Lummi Nation’s effort to bring her back to the Pacific Northwest.
