Ínyan Iyé (Telling Rock) interrogates the relationships between human and non-human entities and intelligences. Through Oglála Lakȟóta ontologies, even materials such as metals, rocks, and minerals can be capable of volition. By considering the 'hearing' and 'listening' capabilities of nonhuman entities, a method of engagement reliant upon mutual respect and responsibility becomes possible. As Ínyan Iyé (Telling Rock) speaks, listeners may respond to it by bending and moving its braids, affecting the sounds.
