"Volcano Woman is often associated with Frog, who serves as her familiar and is her most precious ward. People must respect Volcano Woman and her charges; she protects the wild creatures as her children. Her nature is potentially volatile, vengeful and violent. In one Haida story, the... killing of a frog leads her to destroy an entire village. She controls the activity of mighty volcanoes and acts remorselessly in defense of her beloved [children]" (Shearar 2000: 110) - Understanding Northwest Coast Art: A Guide to Crests, Beings, and Symbols
