Why Do Orignii-Waabigwan Have Thorns?

Ages: From 9 to 16 years old
Duration: 10 minutes

Long ago, all the animals lived in harmony. They ate wild flowers, especially oginii-waabigwan, roses that did not have thorns. But this harmony was disrupted by the greedy “waabooz” rabbits, who consumed entire fields, forcing Nanabouzo to give the roses thorns to protect themselves.
