"For its 2018 Baby Raven Reads series, Sealaska Heritage adapted a trilogy of Raven stories in which he acts as both Culture Hero and Trickster. In Raven and the Tide Lady, illustrated by Tlingit artist Michaela Goade, Raven fights with Tide Lady to bring low tide and allow humans to gather food. The story was adapted by Tlingit writer Pauline Duncan from the works of the late Nora and Dick Dauenhauer, who transcribed the stories from Elders’ oral accounts. The original Raven stories are complex, humorous and sometimes filled with raucous adventures. Raven stories are not about what is viewed as proper behavior, but what is not acceptable behavior. Raven the Trickster is found in oral traditions throughout North America and elsewhere in the world, and teaches people how to exist in society." -- Trickster Company
