Default The Storyteller (Toruk: The First Flight) [possible spoilers]

So I honestly an targeting any who have seen the show. But I was doing some Na'vi clan research and there is something that I need clarified. The Storyteller is said to be a respected Na'vi that travels and tells his stories regardless of his own clan, though it is mentioned he is Anurai Clan online. At the end of the show he says he is one of the Omaticaya boys (Entu and Ralu) and that he is telling his own story. What would be correct? The script is saying one thing and the other officially detailed sources online say another. I'm not sure of Cirque du Soleil changed the script or if I am missing something. I went to the Tampa show

He may have been adopted by Omatcaya clan the only one who can answer that question is the Toruk the first flight story writer or James Cameron .. in truth did he say "he is one of,, or did he say one with ,, Todays Na'vi "see" each other spiritually as "Brothers and sisters"

There is also a possible reflective" aspects with the "real world" Haudenosaunee and The story of the great peacemaker

The Storyteller: An Anurai, he is one of the last surviving members of this clan. He has been around humans – aka the Sky People – ever since he met a feisty xenobotanist with whom he forged a powerful friendship back in the 2140s. Several years later, the Storyteller witnessed firsthand the last time of Great Sorrow during which the Omaticaya Hometree was destroyed. Distressed by the discord among the clans on his home world, and learning how humans were tearing each other apart in the wake of the great climatic upheavals on Earth, the resilient Storyteller decided to reach out once more to the Sky People who saw him as a kind of translator and a wise go-between. By making humans aware of the bravery, valor and ingenuity of the Na’vi, he seeks above all to avoid history from repeating itself. He also aims to impress upon the Sky People the urgency of preserving their bonds with nature, and the necessity of pulling together to live in unity and peace.

The use of the term he "witnessed first hand the destruction of hometree (not to be confused with the tree of souls) that came under under threat in there Ancient past ,, He is reflecting the importance of the lessons passed down through the Oral traditions "As any Native Storyteller would do" when an issue threated community "bonds" what happened to the Anurai Clan is as much an intrest to me as anyone else,, Memorys of the "real world" story of "Ishi" from the film "The last of his tribe" come to mind in reflection,, (That movie is on youtube"

I had the same question after I saw Toruk, I thought there was no way The Storyteller was Entu, my wife said I was crazy he obviously was. I didn't think he could be because I also had read he was from the Anurai clan and Entu was from the Omaticaya clan. Well we got a chance to hang out backstage for a performance so my wife asked Jeremiah Hughes who plays Ralu about it. He said originally The Storyteller was in fact from the Anurai clan but he just wasnt felling connected to the story or character. So things got changed and The Storyteller is officially Omaticaya and is in fact an older Entu.
