Raven was the chief god and culture hero. He is credited with teaching the people how to fish, build their houses, etc. In myth he is the creator of the earth and people. He is also the Trickster who perpetrates practical jokes on people. For this reason, the people were very careful when they prayed to the Raven. They used precise terms to specify exactly what they wanted so that confusion (and the occasional practical joke) might be avoided.

Raven is the original organizer, playing roles of trickster, transformer, teacher, catalyst and chief spirit. He is also a relentless schemer and practical joker, lustful, impulsive, cunning, shameless and without remorse.

Full of magical, supernatural power, Raven could turn himself into anything at any time. He could live beneath the sea, ascend into the sky or make anything happen by willing it to be so. His legendary antics were often motivated by insatiable greed and he loved to tease, cheat, woo and trick.

All too often, however, the tables would turn on the hapless Raven. Raven is also an important totem figure of prestige and is one of the two main crests of the Haida.

The Kwakiutl Raven Mask represents Raven from the North End of the world. This mask is part of the Hamatsa or Cannibal society. As part of the Hamatsa ceremony, members of the society would perform the story of the Raven coming to the village to steal a novice (a young man of the Raven clan not yet initiated into one of the shaman societies) and teach him to be a Cannibal. In order to become a full-fledged member a man must dance a total ceremonial cycle of twelve years
