Sitka: This is a story from long ago, when the great mammoths still roamed our lands. It's the story of my two brothers and me. When the three of us were young, we were taught that the world is full of magic. The source of this magic is the ever-changing lights that dance across the sky. The shaman woman of our village told us that these lights are the spirits of our ancestors, and that they had the power to make changes in our world. Small things become big. Winter turns to spring. One thing always changes into another. But the greatest change I ever saw was that of my brother. A boy who desperately wanted to be a man...

Tuke: I love... dew.
Rutt: I love dew too.

Tanana: Let love guide your actions, and one day, you'll be a man, and will place your mark next to those of our ancestors.

Kenai: I'm not a bear. I hate bears.
Rutt: Well, gee, eh, you're one big beaver.
