In Power Quest, we join Cha it zit in his struggle to become a full member of the Salish Indian community. To prove his powers, he must come to terms with the changes in his relationships, and the shamanist powers his uncle has passed on to him. On this journey, Cha it zit must also face the white "spirit beings" and the challenges these new men bring. He must gather the knowledge he will need to be a leader of his people. His grandfather tells him: "All things live and die in their circle and all the circles mesh. Each depends on the others." It becomes Cha it zit's quest to ensure that the circle is not broken.
