Myth Goes Mainstream

July 3, 2021


Raven has been very present and very loud these last few days here at MossTerra. Dennis suggested perhaps they are announcing their new stamp. I mentioned this legend recently in my blog post about the Asharaji/Creature Nation and was delighted to see this announcement this morning.

We’re excited to announce the first stamp rendered by a member of the Native American Tlingit Tribe. The Raven Story stamp highlights an important story to the Indigenous people of the Pacific NW Coast. Raven plays an essential role in traditional tales of the creation of the world, when Raven sets free the sun, moon and stars. In this design, Indigenous artist @RicoWorl depicts Raven just as he escapes from his human family and begins to transform back into his bird form.   US Postal Service

I can’t wait to get some as we are just about out of our John Lennon stamps…a legend of mythic proportion.
