"Northern Lights" is heard in Brother Bear as a representation of the scene in which Tanana implores Sitka's spirit to guide his brothers, Kenai and Denahi. The piece picks up immediately after Kenai and Denahi's argument. It plays over Denahi's interactions with Tanana, in which he resolves to stop Kenai from enacting revenge on the bear that had killed their brother, Sitka. The score concludes as Tanana asks Sitka's spirit to watch over his brothers.
