Akia has a heart abundant with pride as her tribal women dress up for the celebration. There are flowers in hair, beads and bright colors. There are many smiles and compliments to Rhea as the women dance and laugh. Her tribal daughters are magnificent and joyous, much to her relief. The young tribe had been melancholy for a long time after the sacrifice, despite the birth of a lovely baby girl. Now they were excited for Rhea, who had always been popular with the other women, and would now be in charge of her own camp.
She was excited about the idea, she was confident there was much more world out there.
