Corneille Arc-en-ciel Nagweyaabi-Aandeg is the French edition of Rainbow Crow Nagweyaabi-Aandeg, the 2012 bilingual picture book by Métis storyteller and author David Bouchard retelling of a traditional Lenape story. The story is set long ago before two leggeds walked on Mother Earth. There was a great cold and the animals formed a council to discuss the matter. They decided someone had to seek help from the Creator. Rainbow Crow, a most colourful bird, was selected because she had a beautiful voice that would surely impress the Creator. She flew into the heavens and won fire from above. But on the way back the fire began to burn her plumage black and destroy her beautiful voice. But Rainbow Crow persevered, bringing the life-saving fire safely back to her friends. The art, painted on traditional drums by celebrated Canadian artist, David Jean, compliments this traditional story. This text appears in French and Ojibwe. Ojibwe language translation is provided by Jason Jones. French translation is provided by Sophie Oliveau-Moore and David Bouchard. This valued-added book contains an audio CD with this story read in French by David Bouchard and in Ojibwe by Jason Jones.
