brightcloudwomanBright Cloud Woman is the Tsimshian Goddess of salmon. She was married to Raven for a brief time, but when he blamed her for the way a comb that he had made from a salmon backbone tugged at his hair, she left him and took the salmon with her. Bright Cloud Woman had the ability to create salmon just by dipping her fingers into water, and to transform herself into fog. She is also known as Salmon Woman and Fog Woman, and legends of her are common to many West Coast native traditions.
