"An Alkw is the Speaker of a House. Every Staltmc would have a trained Speaker who knows the history, laws, code of ethics and protocols. The Alkw assist their Stataltmc on interpreting Nuxalk Smayusta so leadership can make the best informed decision based on Nuxalkmc world view. The role of the Alkw is to bring the history alive through the stories and to vocalize the values we uphold as a People, to remind the community of our responsibility handed down to us from the Creator of all things." - Snxakila
