Star of Earth
The Star of Earth is a Chippewa tale about a bright star traveling across the sky. She looked down on Earth and watched longingly as the children played. She wished to live on earth, so that she could enjoy its beauty. She first tried to live among the flowers of the prairie, but was afraid to get trampled by the buffalo. She then tried to live among the mountain roses, but the mountain was too steep and the rocks hid her from the children. She then saw a water lily floating on a lake, and decided to make her home there. This way she could watch the stars from the lake, and the people whom she loved, for their canoes were always upon the water.
