Leaning against a ponderosa on a ridgeline, CMarie watches a storm roll in. CMarie knows this storm, this nature, has something to teach her. The flowers on the mountainside opposite look like eyes; like the eyes of her ancestors, asking her to learn from and fight for nature.

This episode takes place on Nimiipuu, Tukadeka, and Shoshone Bannock homelands.
