Transformer and Creator.
The raven released the sun, moon, and stars; discovered man in a
clamshell; brought the salmon to the water; taught man how to hunt
and fish. The raven helps clarify vision and healing. Messages that are beyond space and time are nested in the wings
of the raven and come to only those who are worthy of the knowledge.
