Karana and the Aleut girl, Tutok, become friends. Tutok visits the cave often while the hunters are on the island.
Karana and Tutok do not speak the same language, but they teach each other their names for different objects and they exchange gifts. Karana accepts the black stone necklace that Tutok leaves for her. Karana makes an abalone disk circlet for Tutok’s hair.
She misses Tutok when the Aleut girl leaves the island with the hunting group.
