Preston Singletary’s exhibition explores a specific retelling of Raven and the Box of Daylight, and in reading Mary Giraudo Beck’s Heroes & Heroines: Tlingit-Haida Legend, we will gain further insight into the folklore and tradition of two Native cultures from the Pacific Northwest.
Over uncounted generations, the Tlingits and Haidas of Southeast Alaska developed a spoken literature as robust and distinctive as their unique graphic art style and passed it from the old to the young to ensure the continuity of their culture. Even today, when the people gather, now under lamplight rather than the flickering glow from the central fire pit, the ancient myths and legends are told and retold, and they still reinforce the unity of the lineage, and clan and the culture.
