STORYTELLER
Traditionally, stories were not told until the first snowfall.
Iroquois oral culture sustains many traditions and ceremonies.
In earlier times, when life was more agricultural and settled,
young people had the opportunity and inclination to listen to
long, involved speeches and songs. Storytelling was a cultural
contact between generations. Storytellers used a variety of
memory aids, including canes, staffs, wampum beads and belts,
feather arrangements and stone construction. These devices
helped to convey messages and strengthened memory of the
customs and beliefs of a people.
