Ojibwe story for very young children about the consequences of pride, anger, competitiveness, and excess.

 

Manabozho loves to play tricks. If someone loses a moccasin, she says, “Manabozho took it.” If the kettle boils dry, they say, “Manabozho ate the stew.” Here, the great trickster-hero of the Ojibwe people gets the tables turned. This is an exemplary story for very young children about the consequences of pride, anger, competitiveness, and excess.
