Syncretism n 1: the union (or attempted union) of different systems (especially in religion or philosophy)
In this story Raven is the Creator Spirit. Long ago he traveled around the world to find other Creator spirits. Raven had flown half way around the world and he had all but given up. Finally, on April 3, 33, Raven noticed a commotion on a distant hill top. As approached he realized he had finally found his equal nailed to a Totem.
