Native American Seagull Mythology

Seagulls play a variety of roles in the folklore of different tribes. In some cases, seagulls are antagonists criticized for their noisy, aggressive, and greedy behavior. In others, they are noted for their endurance and perseverence. In some Northwest Coast tribes, Seagull was said to have powers over storms and weather.
