    Tlingit Religion and Customs

    The beliefs of the Tlingit peoples, like many traditional religions, have a complex and broad history. Tlingit tales tell of the creator, Kah-shu-gooh-yah, whose sacred name was never said above a whisper. This being created all living things, in addition to controlling the sun, moon, stars, and daylight. Nass-aa-geyeil’, or Raven, organized the world and its customs, and many Tlingit myths revolve around his existence.
