    Why the Rabbit Turns WhiteEvery creature is a part of nature's harmony!

    Wesakechak has become lazy and has not fulfilled his duties of making sure his people respect the land and the animals. The animals and rain clouds have departed in disgust, leaving Wesakechak's people thirsty and starving! Wesakechak must search for the animals and ask them to return. During his long journey, Wesakechak is rescued by a little rabbit who teaches him that every living being has a role in the harmony of nature.

    Legend of the Spirit BearLooking after our environment will ensure the safe keeping for all.

    When the Earth is filled with ice and snow, all the hungry animals ask the creator to bring back the seasons. Legend tells us that with the seasons, also came the "spirit," or Kermode Bear. This beautiful white bear is a sign of environmental health. The warning goes that if the Kermode Bear disappears, winter will return forever.
