Clips show an 11 year-old girl with long wavy brown hair driving a side by side and playing hockey.

The narrator says TODAY, WE'RE
VISITING CAYDA.
SHE'S FAST ON HER FEET.

Cayda says ME AND TATEM WE'RE THE
ONLY 2 GIRLS ON THE TEAM.

The narrator says SHE'S GOT HORSES.
WE'LL GO FOR A RIDE IN
HER SIDE BY SIDE.
AND SHE'S A RODEO STAR.

Cayda says I LOVE BARREL RACING.

The narrator says LET'S GO.

In animation, pictures of several different kids appear hanging on laundry lines. A raven on the lines flies off to the sun and opens his wings as the title of the show appears. It reads "Raven’s Quest."

Cayda says DANIT'ADA.
HELLO, MY NAME IS CAYDA
AND I AM 11 YEARS OLD.
I AM FROM TSUU T'INA
NATION NEAR
CALGARY, ALBERTA.

A map shows the Canadian provinces. It zooms in on Tsuu T’ina Nation, Alberta.

Cayda says WELCOME TO MY FAMILY FARM.
MY FAMILY ARE CATTLE RANCHERS
AND WE ARE RODEO PEOPLE.
WE ALSO HAVE LOTS
AND LOTS OF HORSES.
HORSES ARE A BIG PART OF
MY CULTURE AND TRADITION.
WE ARE GONNA DO "COOKING WITH
CAYDA" AND THIS IS MY BEST
FRIEND TATEM.

Tatem is around 11, with long straight blond hair in a ponytail and she wears a striped T-shirt.

Cayda says SHE SLEPT OVER.
CAYDA'S MY BEST FRIEND BECAUSE
WE'RE COUSINS AND WE GREW UP
TOGETHER.
WE GO TO THE SAME SCHOOL
AND WE PLAY HOCKEY TOGETHER.
TODAY, WE ARE GOING
TO MAKE PANCAKES.
POUR THAT IN.

(music plays)

Cayda says TATEM LIKES SYRUP AND I DON'T.
SOME PEOPLE SAY THAT'S WEIRD
BUT THAT'S JUST HOW I LIKE IT.

In the paddock, Cayda says THIS IS MY HORSE
DAKOTA RIGHT HERE.
THIS IS MICKEY,
DAKOTA'S BOYFRIEND.
THEY ARE TRYING TO
GET RID OF THE FLIES.
DAKOTA IS MY RODEO HORSE.
I BARREL RACE ON HER.

A man says HERE WE GO WITH CAYDA.

Cayda says SHE WAS GIVEN TO
ME BY MY GRANDPA.
BARREL RACING IS A COMPETITION.
YOU HAVE TO RACE AROUND 3
BARRELS AND GO AS FAST
AS YOU CAN.
I LOVE BARREL RACING.
I HAVE A COMPETITION
COMING UP SOON.
I AM REALLY EXCITED.
MY MOM IS A COWGIRL.
SHE DOES BARREL RACING AND
SHE IS MY ROLE MODEL TO START
RIDING.
TATEM DOES NOT LIKE HORSES.

Tatem says I'M SCARED OF HORSES
BECAUSE THEY'RE SO BIG.
I FEEL A BIT SAFER
WHEN I'M WITH CAYDA.

Tatem strokes one of the horses.

Cayda says SEE TATEM, THEY'RE NOT THAT BAD.

Tatem says SO CAYDA, ARE YOU GONNA
SHOW ME HOW TO GROOM HER?

Cayda says YEAH BUT FIRST HOW
ABOUT LETS PICK UP HER POOP?

Cayda says YOU GO OVER WITH THIS BRUSH
BECAUSE IT GETS ALL THE MUD OFF.
GOOD GIRL.
SEE WHEN I PUSHED HER OVER?
YOU HAVE TO PUSH HER REALLY
HARD BECAUSE SHE'S REALLY HEAVY.
SO, WE HAVE TO BRUSH HORSES
BECAUSE IT CAN PROTECT THEM FROM
GETTING SORES AND TO GET
A NICE AND SHINY COAT.
I WOULD LOVE THIS
IF I WAS A HORSE.

On her side by side, Cayda says WE ARE GOING TO CRUISE
AROUND, AROUND THE RANCH.
ME AND TATEM HAVE A LOT OF FUN.
OUR FAVOURITE THING TO DO
IS RIDE ON MY SIDE BY SIDE.

(music plays)

Cayda says WELCOME TO MY ROOM.
THIS IS WHERE I KEEP ALL OF MY
STUFF AND THIS IS WHERE
I HANG OUT.
AND THIS IS A PICTURE THAT
I PAINTED IN 4TH GRADE.
IT'S NOT THAT VERY GOOD BUT
I THINK I DID A GOOD JOB.
THESE ARE THE MEDALS
THAT I HAVE WON OVER THE YEARS.

She points at a large sticker on the wall and says ME AND DAKOTA.
THIS PHOTO WAS
TAKEN AT THE N.A.N.C.A.
FINALS LAST YEAR.

A caption reads "N.A.N.C.A. Northern Alberta Native Cowboys Association."

Cayda says MY UNCLE HAD A PHOTO SO HE PUT
IT ON A STICKER AND THEN HE GAVE
IT TO ME FOR CHRISTMAS AND
I WAS SO HAPPY AND NOW I
HAVE IT ON MY WALL.
I HAVE BEEN RACING WITH
DAKOTA FOR ABOUT 2 YEARS.
I REALLY LIKE BEING AN ATHLETE.
YOU HAVE TO BE REALLY
STRONG TO BE AN ATHLETE.
YOU HAVE TO BE NA TSI TSI DI.
NA TSI TSI DI MEANS STRONG.
SO NA TSI TSI DI.

(music plays)

Cayda says SO WE'RE AT HOCKEY
CAMP AND THIS IS MY TEAM.

The team says HI.

Cayda says ME AND TATEM PLAY ON OUR
SCHOOL TEAM AND OUR NATIVE TEAM.
MY NATIVE TEAM IS
CALLED SARCEE 7 CHIEFS.
ME AND TATEM ARE THE
ONLY 2 GIRLS ON THE TEAM.

Tatem says ME AND CAYDA ARE TOUGH AND WE
STICK TOGETHER NO MATTER WHAT.

Cayda says OUR TEAM WON THE
ATOM A CHAMPIONSHIPS.
WE WERE SO HAPPY.
IT WAS REALLY FUN BECAUSE WE
GOT TO ROUGH UP THE BOYS BUT
SOMETIMES THEY WOULD
MAKE FUN OF US BECAUSE WE
WERE THE ONLY GIRLS.
I WANT TO MAKE IT TO THE
OLYMPICS WHEN I'M OLDER AND I
WANT TO BE ON TEAM CANADA.

(music plays)

Cayda says I AM AT THE TSUU T'INA NATION
ANNUAL RODEO AND POW WOW.
MY FAVOURITE RODEO
IS INDIAN RODEO.
I LIKE IT BECAUSE A WHOLE BUNCH
OF PEOPLE FROM DIFFERENT NATIONS
COME TO COMPETE.
I AM REALLY PROUD OF MY CULTURE.
OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH HORSES
GOES BACK HUNDREDS OF YEARS.
OUR ANCESTORS USED HORSES TO
HUNT AND TO PROVIDE FOOD FOR
THEIR FAMILY.
I'M GETTING DAKOTA
READY FOR OUR BIG RACE.
AT EVERY INDIAN RODEO WE
HAVE GRAND ENTRY IN THE ARENA.
WE PRAY FOR THE HORSES TO BE
SAFE AND PRAY THAT WE HAVE A
GOOD RUN.
I GUESS IT'S MY TURN TO RACE.
I'M SO NERVOUS.
COME ON DAKOTA WE GOT THIS.
The announcer says A YOUNG BARREL RACER OUT
OF TSUU T'INA NATION.
SHE CAN HANDLE THAT
HORSE REALLY WELL.
NOW SHE GETS TO THAT SECOND TURN
WE LIKE TO SEE SOME NICE CLOSE
TURNS TO THE BARREL
WITHOUT KNOCKING THEM OVER.
OH LOOK NOW.
THE HORSE IS RUNNING WILD.
WE HAVE A TIME OF 19.84.

Cayda says WOW.
I CAN'T BELIEVE MY
TIME WAS A 19.84.
MY BEST TIME WAS 15 SECONDS
BUT I AM STILL HAPPY
WITH TODAY'S TIME.
I GOT LOTS OF POINTS.
WITH ENOUGH POINTS YOU GET
TO MAKE IT TO THE I.N.F.R.

A caption reads "I.N.F.R. Indian National Finals Rodeo."

Cayda says IN LAS VEGAS.
MY DREAM, SOMEDAY, IS
TO MAKE IT TO LAS VEGAS.
I HOPE YOU HAD A GREAT
TIME HANGING OUT WITH ME.

Cayda and other kids wave and say SIYISGAAS.
BYE.
