Mister Rogers arrives with a collection of Native American clothing which he puts on instead of his usual sweater and sneakers. Wearing a jacket, moccasins, necklace, and headdress, he watches a film of boy scout troop performing Native American dances.

After Mister Rogers makes a shaker with a cup and dry beans, Mr. McFeely stops by with a cradleboard borrowed from the Neighborhood museum. With a baby doll inside, Mister Rogers explains how the cradleboard is used before he sings I'm Taking Care of You.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Handyman Negri is at the castle taking measurements for a street fair booth when Lady Elaine Fairchilde arrives. She is excited to learn about the fair and decides that her contribution will be as a cowgirl with a lasso. She invites Handyman Negri to wear a costume and be her bull.

King Friday emerges from the castle and declares that he will have a "Kiss the King" booth at the fair. Of course, he wants to be sure that Sara Saturday knows about it.

Daniel Striped Tiger is planning a game for his booth where he will wear a Native American headdress while players throw badminton birdies into a basket. He and Handyman Negri try out the game and decide it should be located next to the King's booth. That way people can play the game while waiting to kiss King Friday.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about families within the Native American culture as he shows a handmade basket. Mr. McFeely returns to pick up the cradleboard.
