Raven Transforming designed by Kelly Robinson of the Nuxalk and Nuu-chah-nulth nations.
“In a time when darkness covered the land a sly raven made a plan to turn himself into a hemlock needle and was injected by a young maiden who then bore a son from this seed. Her Father held the light in a closed and guarded box. The young grandson convinced his grandfather to let him hold the closely guarded box and, in this instant, transformed himself back into the raven and escaped from the house with the light and put it back into the sky.”
