Corvids are extremely intelligent birds.  Stories of ravens and crows are found wherever they exist around the world.  Beliefs about ravens are prominent in some Native American tribes, including in the Pacific Northwest where there are stories of how raven stole fire from the sun and gifted it to humanity.

Traditionally, Zuni carvings are symbolically fed cornmeal.   Each Zuni fetish comes in a box with a descriptive card and a tiny bit of corn meal to tide them over until they reach you.
