Description

Elements of Indigenous Style: A Guide for Writing By and About Indigenous Peoples is an essential resource for educators, writers, authors and the general public who are interested in accuracy when writing about Indigenous Peoples. After years in the publishing business, publisher Greg Younging, member of the Opaskwayak Cree Nation in northern Manitoba, has turned his attention to preparing a succinct guide that addresses writing style and process. The straightforward text discusses 22 style principles; provides advice on culturally appropriate publishing practices, including how to collaborate with Indigenous Peoples, when and how to seek the advice of Elders, and how to respect Indigenous Oral Traditions and Traditional Knowledge; Terminology to use and to avoid; addresses specific editing issues, such as biased language, capitalization, and quoting from historical sources and archives; and uses case studies of projects that illustrate best practices. An important appendix lists on-line sources for names of Indigenous Peoples along with spelling variations. The book also includes an extensive index and a helpful bibliography. Highly recommended.
