    i love Little Thunder. I got the new Mikm'aq legends, as done by Sanger and Paul, although I don't know how (or if) they connect with this story. Is Little Thunder's story more well known than the new legends? I appreciate Little Thunder's dismay when the gift he receives is a Stone Canoe- it is a good analogy of how we often react to our gifts- we view them as shortcomings, when it may be our odd gifts that propel us beyond the dust. Kudos to the film-makers, the animators and musicians. This is a wonderful story. Thank you.
