An Indelible Stamp of Culture
The “Raven Story” U.S. postage stamp transports a Tlingit tale across a nation.
While some traditional Native games have been mostly pastimes, others taught life-saving skills and helped avert conflicts.
This carved raven is only one of the stunning glass sculptures in the “Preston Singletary: Raven and the Box of Daylight” exhibition, which opens at the National Museum of the American Indian in January 2022.
