This depiction of the raven is illustrated by Gerald McDermott; this depiction is also depicted as a hero. Somehow, the raven changed himself into a pine needle and fell into a water which a young woman. Somehow later, the daughter of the sky chief gave birth to a boy.

The raven, eventually, was reborn as a young boy in this depiction. The sky chief and the elders gathered around in celebrating the rebirth of the raven. The raven also attempted to grab the box, so his mum got the box for her and the chief told her to given him the ball of light. He turns back into a raven by grabbing the ball of light.
