Elements of Indigenous Style A Guide for Writing By and About Indigenous Peoples

Review :

I really appreciate this guide to writing about indigenous peoples. While designed specifically for authors writing about indigenous peoples in Canada, most of the 22 guidelines easily apply to works on other cultures. I have written some about Black Elk Speaks, back when I was writing teacher guides for the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, and wish I had had this guide in those days.
Living in the Philippines now, specifically in the province of Pampanga, and learning my wife's first language, Kapampangan, I have begun writing short stories and a film scripts about life here. I will be working with local language experts to adapt these into guidelines for writing about the many language and cultural groups here. I'll also post the 22 guidelines in a separate post.
