Indigenous Peoples and Global Communication
Valerie Alia

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 ancient 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.

Valerie Alia is Adjunct Professor in the Doctor of Social Sciences program at Royal Roads University (Canada) and Visiting Professor in the Centre for Diversity in the Professions at Leeds Metropolitan University. An award-winning scholar, journalist, photographer and poet, she was Distinguished Professor of Canadian Culture at Western Washington University, Running Stream Professor of Ethics and Identity at Leeds Metropolitan University, a research associate of the Scott Polar Research Institute at Cambridge University, and a television and radio broadcaster, newspaper and magazine writer and arts reviewer in the US and Canada. Her books include: Un/Covering the North: News, Media and Aboriginal People; Media Ethics and Social Change; and Names and Nunavut: Culture and Identity in the Inuit Homeland.

Book Description: Edinburgh University Press, United Kingdom, 2005. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 216 x 138 mm. Brand New Book with Free Worldwide Delivery. This book addresses cross-cultural representations of ethnic minority peoples by dominant society 'outsiders' and indigenous self-representation in the context of the 'New Media Nation'. In doing so, it explores the role of language, culture, identity and media in liberation struggles and the emergence of new political entities, and opens up issues of colonial oppression to public debate. It is intended to help inform policy in a variety of settings. Grounded in current perspectives on diaspora and homeland and drawing on Alia's work on minorities, media and identity as well as Bull's work on Maori socio-cultural issues and criminalisation of minorities, this volume offers a comparative, international perspective on the experiences of a broad range of ethnic minority peoples. These include Inuit and First Nations people in Canada; Native Americans and African Americans in the United States; Sami in northern Europe; Maori in New Zealand; Aboriginal people in Australia and Roma in Ireland and Britain.Features *Teaching and learning exercises accompany each chapter *Includes recommendations for further reading, listening and viewing *Contains a comprehensive list of ethnic minority media in the UK.
