  • Raven
    The most important of all creatures to the Northwest coast Indian peoples was the Raven. He took many forms to many peoples -- the Transformer, the cultural hero, the trickster, the Big Man. Full of magical powers, the Raven could transform himself into anything. He put the sun in the sky, the fish in the sea, the salmon into the rivers. His antics were often motivated by greed, and he loved to tease, to cheat, to woo, and to trick.
  • Amos Wallace

    Amos Wallace was born in Juneau, Alaska in 1920, a Tlingit of the Raven Moiety. His early years were in Hoonah, Alaska after which he attended schools in Skagway and Wrangell. In 1942 he joined the US Army during Japans invasion of Alaska. Honorably discharged in 1945, he returned to Juneau where he lived until his death in 2004.

    Amos started carving at the age of seven and developed his artistic skills throughout his life, carving totem poles and large plaques. 1958 brought him national fame and many of his totem poles still stand today at museums across the country. He was also a master silversmith and jeweler. During his later years he shared his knowledge of Tlingit art through teaching and apprenticeships.
