Research Ethics and Protocol

The Research Ethics and Protocol document serves four basic purposes.

  1. First, to assist staff, community members, partners and potential partners in participating in research.
  2. Second, to assist researchers/partners and potential partners in learning about Lheidli T'enneh and our communities' expectations around research and partnerships.
  3. Third, to set out a research and ethics protocol that clearly outlines the ethical obligations of any researcher/partner who undertakes research on or with any aspect of the Lheidli T'enneh First Nations community.
  4. Fourth, to set out protocol to ensure that any research/partnerships on or with the Lheidli T'enneh First Nation ensures adherence to our basic mission, values and vision while also ensuring the rights, privacy, and welfare of the peoples and the community remain intact.

Elder's Society

Elders Society

Lheidli T'enneh Elders have decided to create an Elders Society called "Lheidli Dakelh Elders Society". The word Dakelh means "of the People".

Elders of our community have knowledge gained through their experiences of life. We come together to share our knowledge and wisdom with the youth and adults of our Nation. Through our Society, we will be able to access funding that will benefit our community.

We are inclusive, not exclusive. Everybody will benefit from the Society.

Our purpose is to pass on our traditions through cultural practices. Seven generations from now, our "future" generations will have the knowledge taught in cultural fishing camps, hunting camps, berry picking, knowledge in our plants and what their medicinal purposes are, our language which is so important to who we are, drum-making, drumming, dancing, crafts as in beading, potlatch system, lineage, where we come from.

We must not forget who we are: Lheidli - "where the two rivers flow together", T'enneh - "the People". We dedicate ourselves to teach our Nation and our community of Prince George the richness of our culture.

Innately, we are connected to the land, where we receive sustenance in all aspects of who we are, through... Our physical beings, emotional and mental beings and last, who we really are... Where our spirit comes from... "Creator".
