  Why Raven Is Black

 



 

Long ago, in a land before time, Raven was a beautiful, shining, golden bird. He was also a beloved friend of man. He would give them light in the dark. He would care for their children. He would catch fish for them. And all he asked for was a, simple thank you. At first they were astonished at how kind he was being, in only wanting kindness in return. They gave him gold, a little silver, and also what he originally wished for, a thank you. He insisted on ONLY a thank you, so the people did as he asked.

 

As the years passed, the people grew less and less grateful. They would often forget to thank him. He still did his helpful deeds, even though he wasn't awarded his prize. He was fine at first, but soon he grew tired or no reward. He was SICK of them taking him for granted. For THREE YEARS, no gratitude! He decided to make his move. He would end this injustice once and for all. He would kill the chief!

 

One night, he followed the Chief to bed, THe second he turned off the lights….Ahhh!

 

All the chief? guards ran to his room to see what happened. When they saw blood on Raven? beak, they were outraged! They surrounded him, and were about to stab him when he flew out of the chimney! As he emerged, he looked at his wings.  They were a horrible black. And to this today, he is still marked with his ugly black feathers.
