When I was a child
My mother owned a tapestry
Called, “Raven Steals the Sun.”
A creation myth she told me.
Anthropologists make big things
And write books about broken pots.
Later I heard that Raven traded
The fire for some fish and she
Taught people how to smoke
The fish and cook things.
She gave Eagle some of the fire
To put in the sky
So they could see
what they were doing.


There are other stories.
