Raven A Trickster Tale from the Pacific Northwest Source:Book by Gerald Mc Dermott Retold by: Mark, Ruvim, Alex and Dakota from Mrs Nelsons 3d grade using the oral Japanese Kamishibai (telling story from board) Illustrations made by the students inspired by the book
Long ago there was a bird named Raven. All he saw was darkness in the world. Then he searched for light and finally he saw a speck of light. Then he went to find the light.
He flew across valleys and mountains. The light came from the sky chief’s palace. He perched high in the tree. He saw the sky chief’s daughter and the sky chief’s daughter was drinking water. Raven turned himself into a pine needle and fell into the basket. Then the sky chief’s daughter drank the pine needle.
After drinking water, later on she gave birth to a child. His name was Raven.
Raven was reborn as a little boy child. He had shiny black hair and tiny black eyes. After a time he was crawling trying to find the light. He found the light ball.
Raven cried and cried to have the box. So his mother opened the box and there was a smaller box. She opened the lid and there was another smaller box. She opened the last one and light poured all over the room. She gave him the light ball. He immediately changed into a bird.
Then he flew away in the dark sky with the light ball in his beak. Raven threw the sun in the dark and it stayed there. The people feed Raven for bringing them the light.
