High in a mountain meadow, CMarie notices that a small mountain stream makes much more noise than an enormous flood. As she reflects on a waterfall, and what fish may hear, she wonders what the world would be like if we could make more space for these simplest of sounds.

This episode takes place on Diné Bikéyah, Cheyenne, and Ute homelands.
