"Blue Jay Brings Back the Moon": A Celebration of the Diversity of Native Arts and Culture
Blue Jay, Northwest Coast and Salish tribes' trickster character, who through his antics brings us laughter, pranks, and yes, lessons. In this traditional story, the cunning Blue Jay ventures out to bring Snoqual the Moon, Transformer (who had been kidnapped by the Dog Salmon people and taken to the Sky world) back to earth so he could strengthen culture for the humans to come.
