Leon and Ken find an old man dead under a tree. They paint his face (which is tradition for the Indians) and take his body home for a traditional Indian Burial. THey also scatter corn for the spirit on its journey. They meet a priest on their way who expresses sadness that the man had to die alone. They continue the burial in the Indian way until Leon's wife suggests that the Priest pours holy water on the grave. He resists for a while, but finally relents. Leon thinks that now the thunderclouds will come.
