Before the Aluets leave they decide not to give any of the otter to Karana’s tribe and instead offer a chest of jewels the chief disagrees and they start a fight in the end the Aluets win. Also Karana’s tribes cheif dies along with many other Indians.
After the Aluets leave Karana’s tribe is afraid that the Aluets might come back so the new chief Kimki goes out and tries to find new land. After a while men come to the Island saying that Kimki had found new land. When they’re about to leave they leave behind Karan and her brother Ramo.
When Karana is out collecting food she wonders where Ramo is. When Karana finds him he is dead. The wild dogs had killed him.
After Ramo dies Karana decides to leave the Island to go and find her tribe. But when she goes out into the water, water starts pouring in and Karana has to head back to the Island.
