This is a storytelling episode. It is called "The Smallest Hummingbird"; it is a story about courage and bravery, teamwork and unity; it is a story of the landscape above us, the sky.
Music from Bensound - Instinct.
I have not found the original source to this story- if by the Native Americans, the tribe that told this tale has not been found. Nevertheless, the story is not only a powerful parable to ignite our imagination but also one that shows you can make a difference, no matter your situation and circumference and no matter how small the act may be. The union between the land and the sky animals also highlight the importance of co-operation and unity in solving challenges, highlighting more than ever in the world we live in that the ecological and social and climatic changes we face can best be resolved when we put our heads, hearts and bodies together.
