Raven was the Creator-Trickster of the Northwestern Indian cosmology. A voracious glutton, his appetite was only matched by his enthusiasm for mischief. A shape changer, he could take many forms. He loved to upset things and cause trouble.

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.
