A rainy morning didn't deter (from left) Quileute students Dusty Jackson, John Rush and Jonah Ward from offering a salmon to the whales during the Quileute Tribal School's annual Welcome the Whales Day held at First Beach at LaPush. Drumming and students performing traditional Quileute dances were held later in the morning at the Quileute Tribe's A-Ka-Lat Center.
