“有一个山谷,离这里不远,需要你。”那声音Shinaka画了一幅画。“这是一个绿色的地方,生物生活在和平与和谐。我非常想要保持这种方式。山谷里需要一个守门员,谁会保护它和它的居民。Shinaka,我希望你是守门员和保护者的绿色山谷。但是你必须发誓,永远爱你。”Smiling Fawn asks her grandfather, Brave Wolf, to tell once more her favorite story, “The Hummingbird and the Hawk.” As a tribal elder, Brave Wolf shares with her the stories of their people to teach Smiling Fawn about the history of her family and her tribe. The people of the Armaha tribe have a rich tradition of legends handed down from generation to generation. The legends---filled with mystery, wonder, and adventure---help Smiling Fawn understand the beliefs her people guard and treasure. In these stories, she hears of Ahote, the Restless One, and of Ama and Dyami, and the struggles of the little humming bird Nuluk to find a new home for his flock. The important lessons revealed by the stories influence and shape Smiling Fawn's life as she blossoms from a young girl of seven---whom her grandfather calls "little one"---to a young woman of sixteen and learns what it means to be a respected member of the Armaha.
