Energy, Clarity, Truth, Power of Light

The Kwakwaka'wakw (formerly Kwakiutl) native legends regard the Sun as an old man who walks with slow and majestic grace across the sky each day, the Guardian of the world by daylight and the symbol of healing energy from the Creator.

Once the world was dark because a powerful Chief kept Sun hidden in a box. Raven tricked the chief and stole Sun from him, escaping through the Tipi smoke hole and flying with it into the sky where he placed it.
