Raven perched above Tanner Trail at Lipan Point

Traditionally associated with death and darkness in the Old World, the opposite is true in the west, where they figure prominently in creation myths. Both the Hopi and Diné ( Navajo) respect the raven and crow, and tradition tells that Angwusnasomtaqa (Crow Mother) is the Mother of all Katsinas (Kachinas)

 

Tanner Trail descends from Lipan Point on the eastern part of the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Grand Canyon National Park Arizona
