The Crow warrior, Little Bird, was dancing around the campfire one night. When he had a vision! A powerful phrase given to him from his quest guide: “Those who sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.”

The drums of his dance tune echoed through the valley as the voice of his guide echoed through his heart. His mother, Medicine Top, listened to his tale with scepticism. “Our land is free,” said she, “and for it to remain free, we must not cause problems.”

Little bird, however, stuck his tongue out at his mother in an age old sign of defiance. He knew he had to leave his home to find the path to liberty his guide showed him. The guide spoke to him again, “Knowledge is freedom, Little Bird” and showed him his path to the mighty land of the Card Catalogue System.

Little Bird found his new tribe of Librarians. These were people who believed in knowledge and liberty. His guide raised him told him his destiny to become the Head Librarian. As the Head he was to go forth to all the tribes and share his knowledge. And he did. And he did it well.
