The Metlakatla First Nation is developing ways to pass down their culture and heritage.
The Culture and Heritage Program will look at ways to ensure language, artifacts and culturally significant areas are preserved.
Metlakatla’s Shaun Thomas says the disappearance of artifacts was a reason they wanted to start this program.
Metlakatla recently held a forum with members to get their thoughts on what the program should look like.
Thomas says it’s important for the members to give their input.
There’s no timeline of what the program will be in place.
Anyone interested in providing information can call the Metlakatla First Nation’s office.
