White Raven is a supernatural being with powers to transpose and transform and a genius for trickery. Chance puts Raven at the entrance to his Grandfather’s house. He is asked to fetch a box within a box which has two pebbles; one white and encrusted with crystals and the other black. These, the Chief instructed with their giving, were to create land. On the first try, Raven failed by doing things backwards. The second time he created the mainland out of the white pebble and Haida Gwaii out of the black pebble.
With the extreme confidence that comes with being a principal player in the ordering of the universe, White Raven travels through time to be present and swaggers down the dangerous divide, again with an eye to opportunity. Walking down the transition between two worlds he could stumble upon a stepping stone to open the cosmos for the rest of us.
