Inspired by the ancient Tlingit legend “How The Raven Stole The Sun” including
the side story of how the Raven, originally white, changed colors.

Said the Raven to the Eagle
Guide me through the night
Lead me from the darkness
To He Who Stole The Light

Answered Eagle to the Raven
Seek the Bentwoods three
One inside another
Carved from Cedar Tree

Raven journeyed many miles
On mighty wing he took to flight
Across the oceans deep and wide
Til in his sight
A ring of fire

Shifted Raven to hemlock needle
Floating down the stream
The daughter sipped the water
Bore grandson to the Chief

Then the Raven disguised as human
Tricked the greedy Chief
Opened all the boxes
And set the treasures free

Skattered stars that shimmer bright
Hung the moon to light the night
Rose the sun high in the sky
And unto the world
Released the fire

Raven soared through smoke so high
Forever changed
To black from white
