Moon

The Moon is seen in Northwest Coast mythology as a guardian and protector of the people, one of the most powerful beings. He acts as guide, and timekeeper, giving good luck and abundance to the people. The moon is often seen in a Ravens mouth which depicts a creation myth where the Raven releases the sun, moon, and stars into the sky. An eclipse is said to be a Codfish trying to swallow the moon.
