Indigenous media engagement
This team is focused on how Indigenous media makers articulate Indigenous concerns to multiple publics through diverse media forms. They will develop quantitative and qualitative analysis of current practices in Indigenous-focused media initiatives. It considers how Indigenous media makers might inform and enhance best practices for the dissemination of Indigenous scholarship to broader audiences without diminishing necessary historical and cultural contexts.
The team has partnered with Indigenous media makers to develop recommendations for more accurate and culturally-informed media practices and will design and facilitate media training to share these practices.
