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.
The Hawk is a symbol of strength and courage. Many tribes honour the Hawk before conflict, believing it will offer protection in war. It is seen to have the power of far reaching observation and foresight, guiding you on when to take the lead.
