RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 758973680 LA English T1 American Indians and the mass media A1 Carstarphen, Meta G.,, Sanchez, John P.,, PB University of Oklahoma Press PP Norman YR 2012 SN 9780806142340 0806142340 AB "Chronicling milestones in the relationship between Indians and the media, some of the chapters employ a historical perspective, and other focus on contemporary practices and new technologies. All foreground American Indian perspectives missing in other books on mass communication. Particularly valuable are the essays highlighting authentic tribal voices in current and future media. The author chronicles the formation of the Native American Journalists Association, perhaps the most important early Indian advocacy organization, which he helped found. As the contributions on new media point out, American Indians with access to a computer can tell their own stories, instantly to millions of people, making social networking and other Internet tools effective means for combating stereotypes. Includes discussion questions for each essay and an extensive bibliography."--Back cover.
