Long ago a maiden named Ko-kwal-alwoot risked her life to save the Samish people from starvation. She did so by agreeing to marry a man of the sea, who threatened to take the plentiful waters away from the area if she did not. And so Ko-kwal-alwoot lives eternally underwater, ensuring her land has an abundance of food for her people. Glimpses of her can still be seen around Deception Pass, where her hair flows with the cycles of the tide.
