Project Description

The Northern Lights Library System is dedicating time and resources towards a project that seeks to engage and build relationships with Indigenous individuals and communities. The intention is to create a more inclusive library system that makes space for Metis, First Nation and Inuit voices. The Northern Lights Library System deals with the collection, storage and access of literary, audio and digital information, and seeks to use these capabilities to assist in recording and archiving local Indigenous stories and history.

The Northern Lights Library System is NOT interested in obtaining copyright or ownership of the stories or interviews collected. Legal copyright remains with the author or storyteller. It is our intention to create a space on our website where stories and images can be passed on, made available or directly accessed by all community members.
