Since eagles soar high above in the sky, Cole learns to stay strong and proud, while keeping a broad perspective from the Eagle Dance. Cole sees a beaver in the freezing pond, and he does a beaver dance. From it, he learns how the beaver has "persistence, patience, and ingenuity" in order to build a dam all on its own. The fish and mice become a source of food for Cole. They have their place in the circle of life just like Cole has his place.
