Artist's Comments: The White Raven is mentioned in legends and myths in both Northwest Coast and Celtic cultures. Before the Raven was black, he was white. Some legends say it was when he brought fire from the sun to the earth using a branch, and as the branch burned, the soot and sparks turned him black. Other legends say that when the birds were painted their colors raven and crow were last in line, due to their tardiness, when it came to their turn there weren't any colors left, only black, and that is why they fight to this day.
