Hayak´ant´alał - Speaker
Each ‘namima or family group has a designated speaker who is knowledgeable about his family’s privileges and history. A Chief hosting a potlatch will arrange for a hayak´ant´alał to talk on his behalf in the Big House. In earlier times, a hayak´ant´alał would speak through a mask carved with an open mouth.
