Bedazzled Raven Frees Sun, Moon, and Stars – (inspired by the Haida, Northwest Coast legend):

In the long ago, the world was cold and dark because the sun had been stolen by a selfish shaman who kept it shut away in a wooden box. Trickster Raven fooled the shaman into opening the box for “just a peek.” At that moment Raven dove in to steal the sun, snatching it up in his beak. In the ensuing skirmish, Raven momentarily lost his grip and dropped the sun. Two chips fell away to become the moon and the stars. Regaining his hold on the sun, Raven soared skyward and returned it to its rightful place high in the heavens for the benefit of all mankind. Burned by the sun’s intense heat, Raven’s flesh and feathers were singed as shiny and black as coal. For his sacrifice, his burned flesh is distasteful to all creatures and thus Raven is prey to no one.
