Kiʔláwna Andrew McGinnis is a wonderfully kind and generous fluent Elder who resides at Penticton Indian Band. He shared a wealth of stories over the years. Not only did he record stories with the Syilx Language House, he also recorded and transcribed his own stories for years. The stories below are previously recorded by Kiʔláwnaʔ. He generously gave his permission to compile all his works in one place and republish them here as a gift to future learners.
