If anyone desires a wish to come true they must first capture a butterfly and whisper that wish to it.
Since butterflies make no sound, they can’t tell the wish to anyone except the Great Spirit, who hears and sees all.
In gratitude to us for giving the butterfly its freedom the Great Spirit always grants our wish.
So according to legend, by making a wish and releasing the butterfly, our wish will be taken to the heavens and be granted.
So make your wish and release your butterflies!!!
The Indian Legend is very popular for weddings. It is frequently personalilzed to reflect the names of the bride and groom...
i.e., "our wish for the happy union of Sally and Joe will be taken to the heavens and be granted."
