Amnokno – An ancient tradition of using a single night for two people to ‘walk’ together to resolve their differences or become closer in mind. What is said and done during amnokno cannot be held against the other person. When hunters adopted the tradition, they used a single hunt as their form of ‘walking’.

Spirit Song – the song that lives in every person and is often credited to why people get along or not.
