Very cooperative raven at Tower Junction in Yellowstone. I enjoy ravens and their curiosity. In Northwest Indian culture, Raven is honored as a cultural hero. He is a revered and benevolent transformer figure who helps the people and shapes their world for them. But at the same time he is a trickster, and many Raven stories have to do with his frivolous or poorly thought out behavior causing trouble for him and the people around him. Raven is noted for negative traits such as gluttony, greed, and impatience as well as for his heroism and great deeds.
