Princess Kneesaa learning the Three Lessons from Chief Chirpa.

"The leadership of the tribe is a privilege to be earned
Before one is leader, three lessons must be learned
The lesson of the hand will teach both strength and speed
The lesson of the head is learned when hands do not succeed
But the lesson of the heart will make the leader strong
With head and heart together, the hand is never wrong
