The Bear would eat the fish whole and then go to sleep.
One day the Raven laid a bet with the Bear to get the Bear to dance like him. The Bear couldn’t hop like the Raven and he lost the bet, so the Bear would have to save the fish scraps for the Raven and that’s why you see the ravens hovering around the bears when the bears are fishing.
Gary Olver was born in 1966 in The Pas, Manitoba of Woodlands Cree descent. His family moved to British Columbia in 1975. On a family vacation to visit his uncle, who was stationed at the air force base in Masset, Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlotte Islands), he met a number of the Haida artists, watched the artists working on various projects, and he was inspired by the quality of work in progress.
