13 Moons Turtle

13 Moons Turtle

The birds and other animals gathered around but the turtle was mortally wounded, his shell shattered. Turtle called to Creator and said that it was worth it to die for being able to see all the wonderful things Creator had made. The Creator took pity on turtle and allowed the turtle’s shell to be patched up. Once his shell was patched the turtle had thirteen large plates on his back and twenty-eight plates around the edge. This was so turtle would remember every day of every month that he was alive because he was given a second chance.  http://www.talkstorytogether.org/category/storytime-category/american-indianalaskan-native
