His people--descendants of the Cherokee--had settled a frontier planet called Dorvanto twenty years previously, and they had gone back to their people's old ways. He would have felt more comfortable in a leather vest, breechcloth, and moccasins. It had been many years since he'd worn such confining clothing.

What did it mean? he wondered. A hostile environment. A dangerous--and triumphant--predator. Was this nightmarish fantasy merely a reflection of my own unspoken anxieties, Chakotay thought, or a desperate warning from the spirits of my ancestors? His Starfleet training, and experiences among the Maquis, provided him with few clues with which to interpret his vision. Not for the first time, he wished his father was alive and around to talk to. Kolopak had always possessed a greater understanding of the old ways than his occasionally wayward son. " [More.]

He closed his eyes and fell into the trance more quickly and easily than he ever had in the past. He moved inward serenely, seeking his guide--seeking his silent special place.
There was a lot to absorb. He'd never felt anything so deeply spiritual, not in the jungles with his father, not in his own spirit journeys. It had been a pure moment of cleansing, a moment in which centuries of knowledge and evolution had passed into and through his own belief system. It had changed nothing, really, but it had altered his perspective.
He had always known that his spirit must move on beyond his present form, but to truly believe that? Belief in the unknown is not an easy thing, especially for one grounded in a life of harsh physical reality. "

For a long time, he simply held it, feeling its familiar, comforting weight in his hands. Chakotay wondered if he was doing the right thing.

He unfolded the small fur blanket, letting his hands caress the smooth feathers of the blackbird's wing and linger over the carvings etched in the river stone. Chakotay breathed deep and composed himself.

He was surprised at the sight that greeted him. Always before, his spirit guides had met him in the lushness of a tropical rain forest or the cool comfort of a wooded glen. This, too, was a wild place, but as unlike the jungle or forest as could be imagined.

'Ah,' said Coyote mockingly. It tilted its head to the side. 'Not happy to see me?'
Its voice, Chakotay realized with a further sensation of dread, was that of Q.

His usual animal guide had not appeared. Instead, he had faced off with Coyote, an incarnation--perhaps the ultimate incarnation, he mused--of the classic Trickster deity. It had spoken with the voice of the omnipotent alien Q, and it was using the same taunting voice now.
