This paper introduces a storytelling project that aims to preserve and revitalize local cultural heritage in Isan or northeast Thailand. The paper explains how this local storytelling project has developed a global aspect through our meeting with international storytellers. Their many storytelling styles have influenced our own work, and ours has influenced theirs. Finally, we discover that global storytelling can nurture the communities of international storytellers through the ideology of reciprocity.
