AKA: Crow Gets Fire

Hand pulled by the artist from the original end-grain maple block on an Ettan etching press at Juneau, Alaska, January, 1990.

The people didn't know how to make fire so Raven put a hook and line into the water and pulled up burning coals and they cooked a rabbit and a grouse. Afterwards people discovered how to make fire themselves.

An Athabascan Indian myth from the Yukon River.
