Raven

Copyright Barbara Samuelson 1997

Common Raven (Corvus corax). Length 24" Large bird with long, heavy bill and long, wedge-shaped tail. Most common call is a low, drawn-out croak. Notice the feathers along the bill.

For Tlingit Indians (North-western coast of the Canada and S.E. Alaska, known as The Inside Passage), the raven is the main divine character. He organizes the world, gives civilization and culture, creates and frees the sun. For Ha´da Indians (North-western coast of the Canada and S.E. Alaska), the raven will steal the sun from the sky's master, to give it to the earth's people.
