The wind gusted through the Tree, carrying with it the Voices of the Ancestors. The words came through, and settled into his heart where they could not be forgotten. Once the message came in Standing Deer's heart, the wind stopped. Standing Deer opened his eyes and looked at the distant ground and he saw the Way down. It was not at all the way he had taken to come up the Tree. Within a minute, he was back on Earth. Standing Deer returned to his teacher, Grey Fox with both the medicinal bark and his story. “This is a good story and an important experience and lesson for you Standing Deer. You have been seen by the Ancestors. Honor them Standing Deer, as part of your Walk on the Path.” Standing Deer thanked his teacher, asked if there was anything else he could do for the Old Man. Grey Fox gave the sign that nothing was needed, and Standing Deer nodded and left. Immediately, Raven returned and flew overhead. His shadow passed over Standing Deer, the shadow drifting over and molding itself to the contours of the Earth. Standing Deer looked up and smiled. He called out, in the language of Raven, words of gratitude. From that day onward, Raven followed Standing Deer in his dreams, visions and walks, for Raven had found a nest, deep in the heart of Standing Deer, where Raven would never be forgotten.
