Ellen Oh's blog post- Dear White Writers

Yes We Need Diverse Books. But that doesn’t always mean that we want YOU to write them. No, it means we want you to support them. We want you to read them. We want you to promote them, talk about them, buy them, love them. We want you to recognize that these stories told by authors in their own voices has as much importance as all the white ones that are published year after year.

I is for American Indians, Native Americans, First Nations, Indigenous Peoples, Etc. | Olivia Waite

I is for American Indians, Native Americans, First Nations, Indigenous Peoples, Etc. | Olivia Waite | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

When it comes to the treatment of Native Americans in fiction, the romance genre has a lot to answer for. E.g. the millions of historical Western romances with the word “savage” in the title.

I mean, the words holy shit are utterly inadequate there: cultural appropriation does not get more shameless and literal than that.

Indigenous Media Roundtable | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it
Most Canadians don't hear about the stories Indigenous peoples tell within their communities. Mainstream media only covers the most tragic events affecting Indigenous communities — if it chooses to cover them at all. Now, alternative digital platforms have created an opportunity for these stories to travel outside the communities they are about.
