Pauline Hillaire's grandson, Ben Covington, and concert emcee Nick Spitzer.

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."
