Panel Organized by: Jessica Kolopenuk, University of Alberta / Université de l'Alberta

SING’ing Indigenous Technoscience uses digital story-telling to introduce viewers to the Summer internship for INdigenous peoples in Genomics Canada (SING Canada). A series of recorded interviews with SING Canada participants and faculty explain why Indigenous-led technoscientific research and training are vital for operationalizing Indigenous knowledge in science policy. Using art exhibition as a medium to transport the stories of SING Canada and its people, the CSPC audience will meet and hear from the next generation of Indigenous scientists and policy makers: those who are changing national and international conversations about genomics.
