This episode is one of Haiti’s most popular folktales, the story of a young girl’s special friendship with a fish, story of Tezen, the fish. It is an incredible story which talks about the symbiotic relationship between nature and humans and that we need to respect nature. The girl understands and develops a relationship with the earth and is appreciated, recognized as a worthy girl, and rewarded. We also talk  about the prejudice against girls by dismissing or discounting their ideas and thoughts and prejudice against cultural differences, lifestyles, race, etc which can be passed down to generations just like folktales.
