Yehl

by Micha F. Lindemans
The Tlingit creator-god, the bringer of culture as well as a trickster. He stole fire and gave it to humankind. Assuming the shape of a large raven, he flew over the primal fog and dissipated it with his wings until the first lands emerged. Afterwards he created the sun and the moon.

[Northwest-Pacific-Coast culture area]
