The Raven is the culture hero of the Tlingit and other Alaskan Indian tribes. He is a revered and benevolent transformer figure who helps the people and shapes their world for them, but at the same time, he is also a trickster character and many Tlingit stories about Raven have to do with his frivolous or poorly thought out behavior getting him into trouble. I am VERY proud to say i come from this tribe and I was Born in Sitka Alaska :)

Lovebirds Large Necklace by Odin Lonning 2" X 1.3" inch Sterling Silver by Odin Lonning. Haida and Tlingit Indians have two main clans, the Eagles and the Ravens. Traditionally, members of the same clan cannot marry, so marriages signified the joining of an Eagle to a Raven. Eagle and Raven, when linked together, are known as lovebirds, symbolizing the strengths and benefits derived from their union.
