Before two-leggeds walked on Mother Earth there was a great cold. The animals formed a council; someone had to seek help from the Creator. Rainbow Crow, a most colourful bird, was selected because she had a beautiful voice that would surely impress the Creator. She flew into the heavens and won fire from above. But on the way back the fire began to burn her plumage black and destroy her beautiful voice. But Rainbow Crow persevered, bringing the life-saving fire safely back to her friends.
This Lenape legend of courage and sacrifice is masterfully retold by award-winning author David Bouchard. The stunning art, painted on traditional drums by celebrated Canadian artist David Jean, will inspire young and old alike.
