Pierre Naque and the Big Bunch of Ducks - Missouri French tale by Robert Robart, 1993

Robert Robart told "Pierre Naque pis la grande bande de canards" to Dennis Stroughmatt and Kent Beaulne-Bone in 1993. The tale seems to have originated in local Native American lore with a Miami-Illinois character named Wiihsakacaakwa. Multiple versions of the story of a man tying up birds by the feet using a rope underneath a frozen river, who is then lifted away and dumped into a hollow tree, are found among Missouri French speakers who are descendants both of the French and those Native Americans.
