AKA: Raven Steals Daylight

Legend has it, long ago, all the daylight was owned by one family and was hidden away in a box. Raven stole the box, flew up and released the daylight so all could enjoy it.

Raven, a favored grandson, gets to play with "shiny toy" (the sun) from special box, and at opportune moment turns back into Raven, flies up through the smoke hole and takes off for home. He is chased, but he breaks off pieces of the sun as he goes to lighten his load. That is why you have sun, moon and stars today.
