They Live in Willows and Driftwood
Once upon a time the Lakota related:
There were some rabbits who went to dance at a man’s house; the rabbits danced, and they said this: “Big Brother, rabbits stand in fear, they said.
And so, when they came to him, the man came out, and he said: “my little brothers, since it is well you came to me to dance, I shall give you a piece of land where you might live. In this place I give you, you will live in a willow patch and a land of dry driftwood.
Because he said in this place, they lived there in the countryside. For that reason, it is well now for rabbits to live in patches of willow and dry driftwood.
That is all, the end.
On a note: a rabbits’ friendly habitat, appropriate environment for every creature, when in need of help, creatures seem to turn to man for a place of food and protection.
