A Dance Through the Seasons is the story of curious Young Woman who is visited by the Ancestors in a dream. When she awakes she is full of resolve to help the adults take a difficult journey to a beautiful place based on the knowledge she feels she has received in her dream. However, the adults do not agree. She is visited by her Grandmother who teaches her the lesson of peace. She is then visited by Turtle, who teaches her to see the living and non-living that surrounds her through the seasons and to learn valuable lessons from these experiences.
