In the soundtracks
Mark Mancina and Phil Collins composed the score of the 2003 film Brother Bear as well as its soundtrack and unofficial complete score. "Sitka's Advice" was written to represent the scene in which Sitka advises his brother, Kenai, to live by his totem.
In the film
"Sitka's Advice" is heard in Brother Bear as a representation of the scene following Kenai's ceremony, in which Sitka offers advice on how Kenai should live by his totem. The score picks up when Denahi meets up with Kenai after his ceremony and begins to tease him for having a love totem. It carries through their conversation and into Kenai's follow-up conversation with Sitka. The score becomes more urgent when Kenai pursues a bear that has made off with their tribe's basket of fish. It ends as Kenai begins to antagonize the bear by throwing sticks and stones at it.
