    'Rainbow Crow' is a beautiful story, originating from the Lenni Lenape Native American tribe. It tells of how the crow lost its beautiful colors and turned black; a sacrifice made to save all of earth's creatures from the cold of winter.

    Earth's creatures were suffering from a cold, harsh, winter. Many were being buried in what seemed to be a never-ending snow storm, and even huddled together, they couldn't keep warm. If it didn't stop soon, all of the animals would perish. Concerned for his friends, Rainbow Crow flew up past the moon, sun, and stars to visit the Creator, and ask him to stop the harsh cold and never-ending snow. But, since the Creator cannot undo something once it exists, he could only give Rainbow Crow fire to bring back to Earth's creatures, to provide them with warmth. He stuck a stick into the sun, and handed it to the beautiful bird, instructing him to reach home before it burned out. Though Rainbow Crow flew as fast as he could, the torch he carried back to earth scorched his feathers, turning him black, and the smoke made his once beautiful singing voice hoarse. And so the Rainbow Crow was black and had an unpleasant cawing voice forever after, but all the creatures honored him, for he had brought Tindeh, fire, for everyone to use.

    The Crow is to this day, still honored by hunters and animals, who never kill it for food…and, if you look closely at the Crow's black feathers you can still see many colors gleaming in the black.
