Pinéshish la pie bleue
Pinéshish has a broken leg and wants to get away from the storm. Will she be able to find refuge somewhere? An indigenous legend explaining why trees lose their leaves in winter.
Once upon a time there was a little magpie, Pinéshish, who, wounded, asked for hospitality in a birch and maple tree, but it was in vain. She had to find better shelter, which the generous conifer tree offered her. Protected from the winds and storm, Pinéshish regained strength, healed and nourished by the benevolent conifer. Soon, the trees that had abandoned her to her sad fate began to lose their leaves... for the first time in their lives. Mother Nature can avenge the weakest in many ways. It is in the stripping of their adornment that it punishes the deciduous trees for their lack of heart. And it is thus, according to the legend, that every fall, some trees lose their leaves while the firs keep their needles.
