In Southeast Alaska, the Tlingit are divided into Raven and Eagle groups called moieties. Each moiety is divided into clans. Baby Raven teaches the English and Tlingit words for creatures that are important to the different Raven clans - see Baby Eagle to learn about the creatures important to the Eagle clans.
The clan crests were illustrated by Crystal Worl, and the Southeast Alaska environmental illustrations were made by Nobu Koch.
