In the late 1800s, Jesuit missionaries working in North-Central British Columbia recorded the oral histories of the Yinka Dene people.

Based on one of these histories, Tales Our Enemies Tell is the story of the aging Hadintel, chief of the village of Chinlac, who in self-defense unknowingly kills the only son of the Silquotin dennza. Anticipating retaliation, Hadintel sends his lifelong friend Jantalok to investigate the Silquotin village and determine their plans. Captured, then bewitched by a Silquotin woman, Jantalok returns to Chinlac to betray his chief.
