RIIC - Helping journalists tell better Indigenous news stories.

Round-up (redux) of #IdleNoMore reading

RIIC’s first #IdleNoMore round-up was for journalists, or other interested readers, wondering what all the fuss is about. This collection of links is for those who want to dig deeper – writings of some oft-quoted Indigenous thinkers and political-types, fact sheets and other helpful stuff. Thx again @HarshaWalia for forwarding links.

Plus, if you’re struggling with what terms to employ when describing those Native/Aboriginal/First Nations/Indigenous persons round-dancing away in the malls (in which case, you may also be struggling with, what the heck is a round-dance, anyway?), here’s some tips on lexicon and terminology. Please, add other #IdleNoMore resources in the Comments section or tweet ‘em to @RIICNews.
