As a young child, I listened to stories of Raven from my grandmother.
I heard the story of how Raven freed the Stars, Moon, and Sun into the nighttime sky and opened the Box of Daylight. The people saw this daylight and they were able to see their world clearly for the first time. They marveled at the beauty of it. I heard the story about the time Raven was looking out to sea and saw an island of fire throwing flames into the sky. Hawk helped Raven get that fire. Raven, he took that fire, and he threw it into the rocks, the trees, the water, the animals and into all of the human beings. Now we all have that fire. Now we all have that spirit.
In the words of my grandmother, "You are the light of the world, share your light and light the fire in the hearts of the people. You will see their spirits shine."
