Oral traditions markedly retain Indigenous history by passing traditional, cultural, and social information from generation to generation. For indigenous communities and societies living in Canada, the creation of stories, affiliation to the native land, language, historical accounts, teachings, cultural stories, and ecological knowledge have been preserved by means of oral traditions and customs for centuries.
Preserving the history is very important as it leads to events compilation which is then studied to draw conclusions. In Canada, this subject has gained widespread popularity and therefore it is highly in demand. There are many issues which are solved by using oral history lessons or recording of the past.
