Latara wants to play music on her flute all day, but her parents make her clean the house all day, and baby-sit theyre little children. Wicket and the gang come by, and ask her to come and play, but she cant, because she has chores to do. Latara goes out into the woods with her two little siblings, and plays music for them. The Duloks, who have small children of their own, and could use a baby-sitter, too, overhear it, and observe how well she can keep the children under control.
Meanwhile, a circus-type group called The Traveling Jindas
come into town. They travel from town to town and village to village, and
bring entertainment for everyone. Latara begs Chief Chirpa to let the Jindas
stay in the village, and Chirpa lets them stay for one day. The Jindas entertain
all the Ewoks with music, dance, and many other acts.
Chief Chirpa, and the leader of the Jindas with Latara.
