Celetain Prax, Elder Shaman of the AmerIndian Confederacy and Cybershamanisim creator, has a prophetic dream. A nightmarish figure speaks of the White Buffalo who will buy back at a terrible price the Homeland lost to the AmerIndians in 1492. Celetain also sees the danger Jade Dagger faces and organizes their rescue, bringing Keokuk to help his estranged brother. Focus is shifted back thirteen years to 2179. David Stone Rain is mortally wounded in the White Earth Massacre. He calls his sons, Keokuk and Wovoka, to his side to speak to them as Morningstar Prax tries to heal him using traditional shamanism. Stone Rain intimidates the young Keokuk into promising to stay with the Apache tribe and abandon his interest in Tsimshian technology. This promise, made to be broken, forms a wedge between Keokuk and Wovoka. Celetain witnesses the failure of her mother's form of shamanism as Stone Rain dies.
