This well-known myth goes back to the days when the entire world was in complete darkness. The mythical Raven, Lightseeker, roamed the darkness searching for a magical ball of Light that was rumored to exist. Raven was the color of snow then, the same shade as the deep, cold ice that covered the Earth at the time. It was only after Raven discovered the Light and put it into the Sky that the glaciers receded and the Sun’s warmth filled the land.
