The Sun represents abundance, life, healing, and warmth. Released from a box by the Raven, the Sun Chief inhabits the sky and could only be reached by climbing a chain of arrows. The Sun is often carved on totems and masks and sits atop the tallest totem pole.
The Beaver is a symbol of determination and perseverance. Artistic and creative, the Beaver will not quit until the job is done. He demonstrates that hard work and cooperation are important traits to have to accomplish your goals.
