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 sterling silver necklace by Odin Lonning 2" X 1.3" inch. 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.
