Summary / Résumé:

Zima's pearls.

Once upon a time, there lived a little boy named Zima who knew nothing about sea and oceans. Zima was very curious and went to the village elder to ask questions. For answer, Zima only received a huge calabash. The calabash was so heavy that Zima dropped it. An enormous amount of water came rushing out and in the middle of this new sea, pearls appeared. Zima had just witnessed the birth of Cuba, Haiti, Jamaica, Porto-Rico and all the other pearls of the Lesser Antilles.

LDF Notes: Folktale from Haiti

Les perles de Zima.

Il était une fois un petit garçon nommé Zima qui ne connaissait ni la mer ni les océans. Très curieux, il alla poser des questions à l'ancêtre du village. Pour toute réponse, il reçut une énorme calebasse. Trop lourde pour lui, Zima la laissa tomber. En se fracassant par terre, la calebasse laissa s'échapper tant d'eau qu'une petite mer se forma. Au milieu de cette mer, des perles apparurent. Zima venait d'assister à la naissance de Cuba, Saint-Domingue, Haiti, la Jamaique, Porto-Rico et de toutes les autres perles des Petites Antilles.
