N8tauau Kaukontuoh, “she hears the crow”, is a woman of the Eastern Woodlands. She lives her life in the tradition of the Nanhigganêuck, the people known today as the Narragansett. She is a Storyteller of the Longhouse Tales in many different ways including Native Sign Language, Call & Response as well as other traditional styles. She has twice been awarded publishing contracts for her book of poetry, is currently working on a Native children's novel and shares the stories at schools, Community Centers, Indigenous gatherings and wherever the stories lead her.

As a kuh8tomwehteâen {one who shares knowledge}, she loves to share the Longhouse People through their stories.


I have been telling stories for the last 30 years. The reason you will not find much information about me on the internet is because most of my telling was during native circles and gatherings.

Medicine Story was the first Indigenous Storyteller I ever heard. To this day his telling of "How Maushop Lassoed the Sun" is the inspiration for my telling of the tale. Of course living in the northeast, I have listened to Joe Bruchac for years and always walked away having learned something new. It has been my privilidge for the last 15 years to listened to and learned from Elisa (she carries me on her back) Red Leaf, a Grandmother of the Tsalagi (Cherokee) People. She has spent a lifetime as a teacher and a traditional Storyteller of the way of her people and has taught me so much including the difference between one who tells stories and a Storyteller.
