Quote #10

The dress reached from my throat to my feet and I did not like it, either the color of it or the way it scratched it was also hot. But I smiled and put my cormorant skirt away in one of the baskets to wear when I got across the sea, sometime when the men were not around. (29.19)

How do the white men view Karana? Do you think she'll be able to wear her cormorant skirt across the ocean?
