The Kashubian people are known for their great love and attachment to their old – ancient Slavic land. Every loss of independence – which unfortunately was quite frequent over the centuries – was received and experienced tragically and painfully. Frequently repeated attempts to Germanize this piece of land, called the Kashubians, have failed. It is a special attachment to its roots and to its persistence in its national identity, so beautifully decorates the Puck village in particular. The peasant, often robbed and exploited from the fruits of his work, gave this land, in most cases so unhappy, special attachment and love. The measure of this attachment was so great that in many cases, the price of own life was put at stake for its loss. It was 1770 when the First Republic was in decline. The threat of Prussian captivity was hanging in the air. Many Kashubians were concerned about losing the freedom of their beloved land. The influence of Germans on the life and fate of the Republic of Poland was increasing and more frequent. Until the tragic September of 1772, Prussian banners began to hang above Pomeranian soil. A large-scale degeneration and Germanization began. The Kashubian people began to oppose with all their energy and will. Many of them resorted to various tricks and could not accept the fact that their national dignity had again been brutally trampled underfoot.
An old Kashubian man named Reszka, a man with a particularly great dose of patriotism, was so determined and desperate with this device of fate that he decided to enter into agreements with a great witch and sorceress inhabiting Karwieńskie Błota. After meeting her, he expressed his wish and request by her power of magic to turn him into anything, because he did not want to accept the loss of honor and honor in a human form.
After a long discussion this witch turned him into a hawk. He settled on a hill between Rozewie and Chłapowo, from where he had an insight into the vast area of his native land. He began to intensely damage the Prussians in a way ascribed to hawks by nature. He did so much harm and disgust to the new rulers that they decided to kill him. And he was still elusive. No ambushes or other means to dispose of him helped. The enchanted old Kashubian died and appeared again.
In the end, they gave up, considering this hill to be the sole property of a strange hawk. They also called it Habichtsberg, which means Jastrzębia Góra. They did not only know that this bird was a hidden symbol of the Kashubian people, who had once again been deprived of the most precious things.
