A red parrot or macaw and a Raven were inspired of a Zuni legend in which long ago, a priest named Yanauluha blew on his staff producing plumes and eggs. Two eggs were blue like the sky, while two eggs were earth-toned red. The People were asked to chose. Some selected the colorful blue eggs, which after much care and attention turned into a raven. The not so colorful eggs cracked and emerged into a vibrant parrot or macaw. Those who chose the raven became the Raven People or Winter People, while those who selected the macaw became the Macaw or Summer People.
