    “Raven must search for land for a new beginning. He sets out with Butterfly as companion and escort. Acting as scout, Butterfly woudl ascend high above the earth’s surface looking for good land which he would point out with his uncurled proboscis. He tells Raven that choosing a gwaii where bears live will be a sign of plentiful salmon and berries. The wondrous place they found became Haida Gwaii.

    Butterfly’s spiritual metamorphosis within the cycle of life begins by landing on a salmonberry flower.”

    “The Beings in the story “Bear Mother Myth” are the backbone of this depiction. The main characters — the Prince of the Bear People, a Haida Princess, and their offspring, twin Bear Cubs — are all encompassed by the silhouette of Taawaan (Chinook Salmon) to recognize the Northwest Coast Peoples’ oneness with all things and Salmon in particular. The Haida and Bear are unigied by the sharing of their primary foods: berries and Salmon. when a Being presents itself as food, it does so willingly and gives itself to sustain another life. This was given much reverence and it is believed that each entitiy possessed its own spirit. When the spirits gave generously, it meant that life was enriched far beyond the immediacy of a full belly granting the freedom to explore spiritual enlightenment.”
