For the Kwakiutl people, the raven is both a messenger and a symbol of the Creator-Spirit.  Artist Tim Paul (Nuu-chah-nulth) related him to Christ who brings God's word to man.  This window is on the east front of Saint. Andrew's Cathedral in Victoria.

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Victoria acknowledges with gratitude that we work, play, and pray on the territories and traditional lands of the Coast Salish, Nuu-chah-nulth, and Kwakwaka’wakw Peoples. In the light of this truth, and in humility, we commit ourselves to continue to work for reconciliation, and for respectful relationships with the Creator and all creation.
