In the Beginning

The Creator made Raven and Coyote – tricksters from coast and plateau, respectively – for his amusement and our vexation. No one knows for sure what he fashioned them from, but judging by this carving, he might have used a traditional Salish spindle whorl and spun them from mountain goat’s wool. No doubt Raven and Coyote were up to their usual business before too long – discouraging darkness, absconding with the moon, even stealing thunder. Sometimes these two did something useful. Well, maybe that was by accident. Here they are bringing light to the world -- a pretty good trick.
