The Ĩyãħé Nakoda are a storytelling people and believe that storytelling is a sacred event.

It is a special time of sharing, teaching and learning.

Storytelling is a means by which to relate experiences, events and particular happenings.

Morals, values and beliefs may be incorporated.

Stories are generally told in a long, roundabout way. Often there are no endings.

Legends and occurrences are re-told, intact, from generation to generation.

Such accountings must always remain the sacred intellectual property of the Ĩyãħé Nakoda Elders, Traditionalists, Storytellers, and "Keepers of the Legends".
