Rainbow Crow is one of the most beautiful books featured in our American History program: Indigenous People of North America and Hawai’i. In this Lenape legend, Crow goes to the sun and brings fire back to Earth to save all the animals from a bitter winter. As a go-along for this story, making Rainbow Crow as scratch art felt like the perfect pairing.
