Hawhaw Raven's Words

Hawhaw Raven's Words

To HawHaw Raven, the Tlingkit

Eagles cry over the totem of my birth.
They sing of the salmon streams
that are fished by bears
in winter's less remembered.

They are the winds of Hawhaw wrapped in a blanket,
who sits and tells stories of the people
to his grandson Swimming Bear
by the gentle fire as the winds blow.

So, Hawhaw, tell me your story again.
And this time, let everyone hear it well.

Bridge song over Tongass,
Walk with me again,
So that I can taste again the elderberry
and listen to the eagle's cry.
