Raven and the First Men
"Raven was on the beach one day, and found an enormous clamshell. it was partially open, and he could see people peering from within. Raven hopped up and encouraged the people to come out and join him in his world. Hesitantly, they emerged and became the first Haida."
I *love* PNW First Nations art and legends. I've been reading books and making a great study of Tlingit, Haida, and Kwaquitl art, trying to learn the basics of it. This Raven story is one of my favorites, along with Natsilane and the creation of killer whales. I may have to try that one, too.
