"Around the planet, Indigenous people are using old and new technologies to amplify their voices and broadcast information to a global audience. This is the first portrait of a powerful international movement that looks both inward and outward, helping to preserve ancient languages and cultures while communicating across cultural, political, and geographical boundaries. Based on more than twenty years of research, observation, and work experience in Indigenous journalism, film, music, and visual art, this volume includes specialized studies of Inuit in Nunavut and the circumpolar north, and First Nations peoples in the Yukon."--Jacket
Names and Nunavut : culture and identity in Arctic Canada by Valerie Alia( Book )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On the surface, naming is simply a way to classify people and their environments. The premise of this study is that it is much more - a form of social control, a political activity, a key to identity maintenance and transformation. Governments legislate and regulate naming; people fight to take, keep, or change their names. A name change can indicate subjugation or liberation, depending on the circumstances. But it always signifies a change in power relations. Since the late 1970s, the author has looked at naming and renaming, cross-culturally and internationally, with particular attention to the effects of colonisation and liberation. The experience of Inuit in Canada is an example of both. Colonisation is only part of the Nunavut experience. Contrary to the dire predictions of cultural genocide theorists, Inuit culture -- particularly traditional naming -- has remained extremely strong, and is in the midst of a renaissance. Here is a ground-breaking study by the founder of the discipline of political onomastics"--Provided by publisher

Outlaws and citizens: indigenous people and the New Media Nation( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Emerging from the international movement of Indigenous peoples, what the author terms the New Media Nation is linked to the explosion of Indigenous news media, information technology, film, music, and other artistic and cultural developments. The creators of Indigenous media projects experience an array of government, transgovernment, corporate and other policies and pressures: these range from supportive to disinterested, to hostile and sometimes life-threatening. In the most supportive environments, they are able to participate as citizens working within government media policies. In the most hostile environments, they are forced to become outlaws, finding ways to send printed materials, radio signals and Internet transmissions across borders that often artificially (re)construct Indigenous peoples as bounded by nation-states. Indigenous people are using old and new technologies to amplify their voices and expand their power, disseminating information to a rapidly expanding global audience. The article draws on more than 20 years of research in several countries and picks up key themes elaborated in the book, The New Media Nation, now in press
