“The legend of Volcano Woman, or Frog Woman, appears in one form or another among many of the peoples living in the northern areas of North America and Asia. Within the Northwest Coast area, the legend is most important among clans of the [Nisga’a], Tsimshian and Haida. Some of their stories concerning Volcano Woman were recorded by Marius Barbeau in ‘Haida Myths’ (Ottawa, 1953). It’s interesting to note that within the [Nisga’a] and Tsimshian, the legend and hence the Frog crest, belongs to the Raven people, while among the Haida the Frog crest is Eagle.”
