SULINGITUK GOVERNMENT: Complexity

Fictional Case Study

The Sulingituk team customizes the terminology on the Recommended Indicator List by replacing “[SGIG]” with “Sulingituk” throughout, and uses the terms “members”, “elected leadership” and “Treaty rights” as these are commonly used throughout the community.

The Sulingituk team carefully reviews all survey questions and response options and makes changes such as specifying the types of ceremonies and cultural practices that are commonly practiced by Sulingituk people, customizing the species commonly harvested from the land, and referencing the specific programs that the Sulingituk Government administers. They choose to make these lists as comprehensive as possible, planning to summarize results for community reporting purposes, but use detailed data for program planning purposes.
