Research speaks on the importance and value that storytelling holds in respect to knowledge for many Indigenous communities and people around the world. This same study found that social workers and social service systems tend to focus on the acute presenting issues, but those issues are only one part of the grief experienced and outlined within these stories.
These stories offer insight into how Indigenous people navigated through grief to find healing and ultimately, the stories witnessed by the researchers underlined the fact that "connections to family, culture and ceremony are important components of healing". The researchers concluded that "it is necessary for social workers to know the history of place from an Indigenous perspective and promote Indigenous rights".
