Pauline Hillaire's grandson, Ben Covington, who represented his grandmother at the concert, is interviewed by concert emcee Nick Spitzer. He said, "My grandmother gathers her strength from her great-grandfather, Frank Hillaire, and Joseph Hillaire, her father. Her name, [Scälla means] 'of the killer whale.' The killer whale is a pillar and guardian of the sea, much as my grandmother is a pillar and guardian of our way of life."
