Ravens have inspired a large body of folklore and legend which is not entirely negative. i would like to concentrate on the more positive tales . for a good laugh you can google the Raven saying Never More Never more WHACKA WHACKA WHACKA on u-tube.

the vikings worshipped and revered ravens and its image was carried on all their banners and shields. since ravens had the power of human speech they were thought to fly all over the world everyday returning at night to tell of what they had seen and heard. the irish phrase"ravens knowledge" applies to anyone who appears to see and know all. in europe the raven was considered a mystical and magical bird. Alexander the Great was said to have been guided across the desert by two ravens sent from heaven. in Briton legend maintains that England will not fall as long as Ravens remain in the tower of London.

the raven was connected with the creation of the world by american indians who made people out of a rock and a leaf. the raven showed the leaf to the people and said "see this leaf" you are to be like it. when the leaf falls from the branch and rots there is nothing left. thus the raven also brought death to the world. one indian tribe believed he raven was a mythical ancestor of their tribe and performed many wonderful deeds at the beginning of the world. one such deed was determining the particular task a bird should perform, where they should live and what their color should be. for instance the American Robin was was to give pleasure to man through its beauty. all birds were told to dress differently so they could recognize each other. the Blue-Jay was told to pie its hair high and tie it with a string. the magical Raven could transform itself into whatever shape it chose and remove its feathers like a coat. as a spirit of creation he had not beginning or no end.
