Raven is central to coastal mythology. As a culture hero, a transformer, and a trickster, his adventures at the beginning of time released the sun and the moon and brought the world into existence. Raven is identified by its straight beak and lack of ears or plumage on the head.
Moon is associated with peace and transformation and is also widely regarded as a protector and guardian spirit. In some stories the Moon originated as chip of the Sun, which Raven broke into pieces. Moon is often depicted with humanoid features and can be distinguished from the Sun by a labret in its bottom lip indicating female nobility.
