How does information get on FirstVoices?

The content process

Any language or media content available on FirstVoices is collected, uploaded, and curated by teams of people from that language community.

Teams are made up of youth, language teachers, language champions, fluent Elders, and more. These teams work to record language interviews, edit the audio for use in FirstVoices entries, upload the information to FirstVoices, and manage their language sites long-term.

BC First Nations are eligible for funding to support this work. Funding is delivered through First Peoples' Cultural Council and First Peoples' Cultural Foundation.
