Why we capitalize the ‘I’ in Indigenous: Guidance on writing with and about Indigenous Peoples
April 1, 2021 at 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
Join Dr. Kerrie Charnley for a talk on writing with Indigenous Style, from land acknowledgement to land back and why we use the capital “I” in Indigenous.
What is the most respectful way to communicate with—and about—Indigenous Peoples and individuals? In this webinar, participants will be introduced to guiding insights from Gregory Younging’s Elements of Indigenous Style (2018). These insights will help participants understand the Truth and Reconciliation of Canada’s 94 Calls to Action, and particularly, in educational contexts. The webinar will also introduce participants to “cutting edge,” recently published resources on writing, curriculum and pedagogy, for indigenizing the academy, classroom and beyond.
