In The New Media Nation: Indigenous Peoples and Global Communication by Valerie Alia, Adjunct Professor in the Doctor of Social Sciences program at Royal Roads University (Canada), offers readers a look into the new methods Indigenous Peoples have adopted as tools for preserving Indigenous languages and cultures. Around the planet, Indigenous people are using old and new technologies to amplify their voices and broadcast information to a global audience. This is the first portrait of a powerful international movement that looks both inward and outward, helping to preserve Indigenous languages and cultures while communicating across cultural, political, and geographical boundaries. Based on more than twenty years of research, observation, and work experience in Indigenous journalism, film, music, and visual art, this volume includes specialized studies of Inuit in the circumpolar north, and First Nations peoples in the Yukon and southern Canada and the United States. Other Indigenous Peoples included are the Sami, the Maori, and the Australian Aboriginal People. The author has spent several decades researching and documenting Indigenous movements and new media. From the international scene to the local grassroots, the book clearly documents the role of the new media in major events such as Oka, as well as the grassroots people involved at the local level. The work of Dan and Marylou Smoke, Bud White Eye, George Manuel, Mary Simon, Jeannette Armstrong, and Gary Farmer are highlighted. This volume is highly accessible and readable for senior secondary level and university students.
