I will dance again.

It's powwow day! But then River remembers: she can't dance like she could before she got sick. She's just not strong enough yet. Family and friends surround her with loving encouragement as she struggles with frustration. At last, the healing prayer of the jingle dance reminds her that she will dance again.
