"Raven is one of the most important beings in Northwest Coast art and mythology, although the nature of his role varies from one culture to the next, and his predominance diminishes from north to south. To the Haida, Tlingit and Tsimshian, Raven is the original organizer, Trickster, Transformer, teacher, catalyst and chief spirit. He is also a relentless schemer and practical joker, lustful, impulsive, cunning, shameless and without remorse" (Shearar 2000: 88) - Understanding Northwest Coast Art: A Guide to Crests, Beings and Symbols
