When raven brought light to man, he went into the creator’s home disguising him as a grain of dust, hoping to steal the sun. Hiding in a cup, hoping for the creator’s daughter to swallow him, she easily noticed and blew it away. He then changed into a hemlock needle, floating on the surface of liquid, but she lifted him away. Undiscouraged, Raven changed to mud from the springs and when she was thirsty for a drink of water, she gave raven the chance to enter her body.
