Often times our people out at sea in their canoes saw a huge face emerge from the ocean. It came up in a way as to display itself and its power as the chief that controlled all within the oceans. [In this mask] he brings up the great serpents to perform for us and show our people how to do the sea serpent headdress dance. Our people tell of this great story as to how we are able to use the headdress for performances.
