Raven was bored. He was walking along the beach in Haida Gwai, looking for some new way to *amuse himself. As he walked along the beach, the blue ocean in front of him and the green forest behind him didn’t seem interesting. Raven wanted to play, but there was no one to play with.
Then he heard a strange sound, unlike any sound he knew. He looked up and down the beach. Where was it coming from? As he walked he noticed a large white *clamshell lying in the sand. Inside the clamshell were tiny *creatures, unlike any he had seen before.
Raven bent down to get a closer look. The creatures seemed afraid of him, so he began to *coax them in a gentle voice, “Come out. Come out. Don’t be afraid. I won’t hurt you.”
A few of the creatures came out of the clamshell. They were very different from Raven. They had no *feathers, no *wings, and no *beaks. Like him, they walked on two legs, but they had arms, faces with mouths, and black hair. They spoke to each other in a language that Raven didn’t understand. These tiny creatures were the first humans.
Raven enjoyed watching these humans play and *explore the world. After a while, when he was beginning to feel bored again, he noticed that these humans were only men. There were no women. Raven had an idea. He wondered if he could find some women. He searched for a long time. Then he saw some *chitons. He opened one of the chitons and found some lovely, tiny women. He brought the women to the men.
Raven enjoyed watching the behaviour of the men and women. He saw them begin to pair off and have children. The human families moved to other parts of the island. Since that day, many generations of humans have grown and *flourished, and Raven has never been bored.
