PORT ANGELES, Wash. (AP) -- The spring migration of gray whales is underway as more than 20,000 swim from their breeding waters off Baja, Mexico, to rich feeding grounds in Alaska's Bering Sea.
Migrating whales can be seen from many locations along the Washington coast or the Strait of Juan de Fuca where some stray.
The Quileute Tribe is holding a ceremony Friday (at 10 a.m.) at LaPush to welcome the whales.
The Peninsula Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/1qFrsNV ) tribal school student perform traditional dances that recall the tribe's history of hunting whales from canoes with ropes made from cedar and floats made from seal skins.
