Messenger of the Northwest
Classic Salmon Flies
Bred for the Plowland
The Raven is considered to be the messenger between the living and the spirit world by many Pacific Northwest Indian tribes. The Haida believed that Raven, creator of the world,
brought forth light, life and order and that nothing could exist without Raven. The sacred bird is honored in art and on totem poles reflecting the tales and mysticism that have developed around it. Some tribes believe that Raven teaches you to understand the language of animals and if Raven comes into your life, expect magic. With Raven, human and animal spirits intermingle and become as one.
