New Power of Data story explores the relationship between data collection and First Nations storytelling traditions

For the latest story in our Power of Data series, FNIGC travelled to Saik’uz First Nation in the heart of the British Columbia interior, where we spent a day visiting with the Chief and others in this small Carrier community. As we discovered, data can takes many forms in First Nations communities, including the traditional stories that are handed down from one generation to the next.  

To Stanley Thomas, Chief of Saik’uz, oral storytelling traditions are an important means of transmitting cultural information within a family and the community as a whole.
