Kwagutl Raven

Raven (Kwekwaxa’we in the Kwakiutl language, also spelled Kewkwaxa’we or Kwêkwaxâ’wê): Raven is the culture hero of the Kwakiutl and other Northwest Coast tribes. He is a benevolent figure who helps the people, but at the same time, he is also a trickster character and many Kwakwaka’wakw stories about Raven have to do with his frivolous or poorly thought out behavior getting him into trouble.
