Since Cole saw the Spirit Bear, he thinks it is appropriate that he dances to represent his experience with the bear and how it had changed him. Particularly moving is Cole’s Spirit Bear dance in which he reenacts the scene of the mauling from the perspective of the bear. The author uses this clever way to demonstrate how Cole is beginning to understand empathy and forgive instead of holding anger.
