Raven and the First Humans (Inspired by the Haida, Northwest Coast legend):

After the great flood, Raven was walking along the beach foraging for something to eat when he spied a very large clamshell. Coming closer, he heard unfamiliar sounds coming from inside the shell. Ever curious, Raven peered within to see what was making these peculiar noises and spied numerous tiny beings huddled together, frightened after enduring the traumas of the flood. In order to coax the creatures to come out, Raven stood on top of the shell and sang gently to reassure them; “Come out, come out, no need to be afraid, I am Raven, who brought the sun back, I will not hurt you, come enjoy this beautiful world, it is safe, the flood is over.” Raven has many voices, ranging from sharp warning calls to crooning, lulling vocalizations, and he was careful to use his most soothing and melodious songs. One by one, the beings emerged… and this is the story of how Raven discovered the first humans, known today as the Haida peoples of British Colombia.
