Indian story or legend about Sassafras leaves

This is a little out of the ordinary, but I am looking for an Indian legend or story as to why the Sassafras tree has different shaped leaves. My search online has not produced any results. It seems to me the story told about an Indian brave and a princess. I found one story online about an Indian brave wanting thumbs and his subsequent jump off a cliff, but that is not the one I am looking for. I have been helping with field trips for students at a local county park and would like to share the story with the children. Thanks!
