This is a story that I am calling a "new Native American story". I have always loved the old stories about raven and coyote, the lion and the mouse. These stories are pure, creative, and the main characters are almost always animals. We are able to read certain characteristics into these animals; strength, courage, and mischief, in order to learn something about our human nature. In this story I'd like to suggest a different way of viewing the world rather than a moral about character. We could all use a little more color in our world.
