According to Haida legend, in the beginning the world was lost in total darkness. The Raven who had existed from the beginning of time came upon the treasure of light trapped in a box. Through his clever slyness, the Raven captured the ball of light in his beak and released the sun to into the universe. In Northwest Coast Native tribes, the raven symbolizes wisdom, creativity, trickery and healing.
