About this item

This book offers a scholarly framework that combines ideas from Indigenous and non-Indigenous critical and cultural theorists to analyze how Indigenous people in Canada have used media, film, TV, journalism, and art over the past five years to resist oppression and colonial paradigms. Contributors use qualitative methods, interviews, participant observation, discourse analysis, and storytelling analysis. Some topics explored are reporting the news in Indigenous communities, online expressions of Inuit culture, and Indigenous art challenging cultural institutions. Projects described include survivors’ testimonials in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, IsumaTV, and The imagineNATIVE Film and Media Arts Festival. The book also includes an interview with journalist Duncan McCue and discussion of the work of filmmaker Alanis Obomsawin. B&w historical and contemporary photos and art are included. Distributed in the US by University of Washington Press; Canadian distribution is by University of Toronto Press. Annotation ©2018 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
