T’sing (pronounced tch’ing)
“Though I have never seen t’sing, I always know where he has been. I see the signs of his industry when I run Spirit Lake. And I know from what I see, he is ambitious. He is also humble; we never see him at work, we only see the evidence of his labours. He is hardworking; he does not get caught up in plans to do things, instead he simply accomplishes them. Like Beaver holds onto his stick, I hold onto his lesson: focus your energy on working toward your achievements and new perspectives will be revealed.” – Ben Davidson
“The beaver, well known for its industriousness and building skills, is a common inhabitant of the Northwest Coast region…Beaver appears in Northwest Coast mythology and is a crest in many regions…In Haida mythology and art, Beaver has a prominent place. Along with Raven, he is intimately connected with Snag, Sea Wolf, Sea Bear and other powerful beings of the undersea world.” (Shearar 2000:20-21) – Understanding Northwest Coast Art: A Guide to Crests, Beings and Symbols
