The Common Raven appears frequently in myth, legend, art and tradition and, for this reason, is considered sacred to many Indigenous Peoples throughout Canada, and particularly to the Aboriginal people of the British Columbia coast, where it symbolizes creation, knowledge and prestige.

It’s a well-known clan totem for several other Indigenous Peoples and the Inuit also hold the Raven in high esteem as the Creator of All Life.

Not only is the Common Raven a fascinating species with strong ties to Canada’s Indigenous Peoples, it’s also an important inhabitant of our ecosystems, helping nutrient cycling by consuming carrion and controlling prey populations.
