The Raven Tales are a saga of over 150 stories of Native American mythology, centering on the transformer and trickster Raven. In these stories he is responsible for the creation of the world, finding the first people and bringing important foodstuffs such as salmon into the world. The Raven Tales remain one of the least known, but greatest oral traditions of Native American cultures.

Raven Tales is also the name of an award winning animated television show. Raven Tales is unique in that it features an all First Nations cast and is produced by a First Nations/Native American owned and operated production company.
