Moon appears in the [oral histories] of all Northwest Coast nations, though Moon's origin varies from story to story...Most northern [groups] thank Raven for the gift of moon, and sometimes describe Moon as a chip off of Sun, which Raven clumsily dropped...Moon is characterized as a rounded face with relatively flat features, often those of a human..." (Shearar 2000: 71-72). - Understanding Northwest Coast Art: A Guide to Crest, Beings and Symbols
