The Raven by CherishedMemories The Raven by CherishedMemories
Raven in mythology

Many indigenous peoples of the Pacific Northwest Coast of North America and northeast Asia revered it as a god. In Tlingit and Haida cultures, Raven was both a Trickster and Creator god. Related beliefs are widespread among the peoples of Siberia and northeast Asia.[95] The Kamchatka peninsula, for example, was supposed to have been created by the raven god Kutkh.[96] There are several references to Common Ravens in the Old Testament of the Bible and it is an aspect of Mahakala in Bhutanese mythology.[89]

The Norsemen believed that ravens Hugin and Munin sat on the god Odin's shoulders and saw and heard all,[97] and a Raven banner standard was carried by such Viking figures as the Norse Jarls of Orkney,[98] King Canute the Great of England, Norway and Denmark,[99] and Harald Hardrada.[100] In the British Isles, ravens also were symbolic to the Celts. In Irish mythology, the goddess Morrígan alighted on the hero Cú Chulainn's shoulder in the form of a raven after his death.[101] In Welsh mythology they were associated with the Welsh god Bran the Blessed, whose name translates to "raven."
