Swan Circling is a courageous warrior woman and Kaya wants to be her friend and learn from her. Swan Circling sees in her many admirable qualities she willing points out to Kaya, but Kaya remains embarrased by her past mistakes. She feels the compliments could not be true, and is ashamed to tell Swan Circling about how she got the dreaded nickname and how she got herself and her sister captured by the neighboring tribe.
