Way back, before once-upon-a-time, there was the Dreamtime when all the birds were white. One of these was a crow called Waan. One day a big storm came through and a magnificent rainbow appeared. When the birds passed through the rainbow, their feathers took on its beautiful colours. But Waan was wanted to be more beautifully coloured than anyone. So he hatched a cunning plan. But things did not go the way Waan wanted.
