As the dancing begins, Rainy enters the arena but she is too shy to move. Then, listening to the drumbeats, Rainy moves with the rhythm and keeps on dancing even when the music stops. The sound of laughter gradually reaches Rainy, who flees the dance floor embarrassed and humiliated. While it is Grandmother White Hair's words that comfort her, it is the eagle's gift that gives Rainy her special name and the inspiration to choose her own dance.
A Native American girl attends the traditional powwow where she is expected to choose for herself a specific form of dance and receive her special name.
