Raven and the Box of Daylight is derived from an ancient creation story that has been passed from generation to generation for thousands of years. Adapted from oral histories by Pauline Duncan and illustrated by Lindsay Carron, it is also available as part of a three-book set that includes "Origins of Rivers and Streams" and "Raven Brings Us Fire." All three books are part of Baby Raven Reads, a Sealaska Heritage program for Alaska Native families with children up to age 5 that promotes language development and school readiness. Hardcover, 14 pgs.
As a company with deep roots in Ketchikan we wish to honor and pay respect the original Peoples of this beautiful land: the Lingít (Tlingit), Xaadaas (Haida), and Ts’msyen (Tsimshian).
One way we are doing that is by providing direct financial support to the Sealaska Heritage Baby Raven Reads program. This program reflects our values which include early literacy as the foundation for personal growth, lifelong learning, and a means to pass essential knowledge and traditions from one generation to the next.
We are committing 100% of the profits from our Skookum® branded products to this effort to be given as an annual donation to support Sealaska Heritage Institute’s Baby Raven Reads program. Learn more about the award-winning Baby Raven Reads program here.
