Raven and the Box of Daylight is an ancient creation story based on oral history that has been passed down from generation to generation for thousands of years. Traditional stories document Native history, reflect Native world views, and are highly valued clan possessions that are integral to Native identity. This traditional store was adapted from oral accounts into a children’s book written by Pauline Duncan.
Baby Raven Reads is an award-winning Sealaska Heritage education program that promotes early-literacy, language development and school readiness for Alaska Native families with children up to age 5. The pilot program in Juneau ended in 2017, and SHI received funding to offer the program for another three years and to expand it to nine other communities in Southeast Alaska.
