A Itanchan Tawomnaye (Tribute) and Woyuonihan (Honoring ) of our Hunkayapi (Elders)
Each year the ICC Board of Directors recognizes and honors one of the Ihanktonwan Oyate for contributions made to the people, families, friends, and community. The Hunkayapi are considered to be highly respected within the culture of the Ihanktonwan and their wisdom and knowledge is highly sought after. Traditionally it was the Hunkayapi of the people who passed on the teachings of the people.
