Where have these strange people come from? What are the huge vessels they travel on and those particular skins they wear?
Her dreams conjure up visions of their stories; she imagines herself in these strange clothes and living with these material possessions. Her musings are curious rather than fearful - do they feel the same way she does? As her journey progresses, so does her realisation that their culture is not her culture. As time passes, she sees the impact these new settlers are having on her people.
Dreams broken, hopes replaced with despair, she begins to shed her newly-clothed skin and returns to her roots to find freedom - the connection back to her land.
