This totem represents the legend of the great flood. When the water was about to cover the roof, the old Raven flew up to Heaven with little children, shown between his wings, and saved them. After the flood subsided he flew down again, and is represented landing upon the earth by a frog, an earth dweller (written on back of the totem).
