A symbol of prosperity, wealth, and good luck. In Tsimshian culture, the Frog is known as the communicator between Earth and mankind. Their song carries divine power and magic; it represents Spring and the abundance to come. The Haida carved frogs on their house posts to keep them from falling over. When the frog is shown sticking out its tongue and touching another creature, it portrays the sharing of knowledge and power.
