I believe an event similar to this 'legend' happened to me: As a gift to His human children, the Great Spirit created butterflies. He took a spot of sunlight, a handful of blue from the sky, the whiteness of the cornmeal, the shadow of playing children, the blackness of a beautiful girl's hair, the yellow of the falling leaves, the green of the pine needles, the red , purple, and orange of the flowers around him. Once he gathered the most beautiful of colors, He made them into butterflies. If you want a special wish to come true, you must first capture a butterfly and whisper that wish to it. Since a butterfly can make no sound, it can not reveal the wish to anyone but the Great Spirit who hears and sees all. In gratitude for giving the beautiful butterfly its freedom, the Great Spirit always grants the wish.
