The Birch Bark Woman

Story: A prayerful medicine woman once had a hard life of great mistreatment. She decided one day that she could not live this way, and took her tobacco to the birch forest to pray for a life of kindness. The Creator pitied her tears and turned her into the beautiful white birch tree. The birch tree's love for the woman was so great, that it bore the scars of her beatings and gifted her with good medicine so she could continue to help her people.
