Elements of Indigenous Style; A Guide for Writing by and about Indigenous Peoples with Gregory Younging

Event Date: 9th March 2018

The Book Publishers Association of Alberta and the Writers’ Guild of Alberta are pleased to present an informative talk (and book launch) addressing guidelines aimed to help writers, editors, and publishers produce material that reflects Indigenous people in an appropriate and respectful manner. Features include guidance on working in a culturally sensitive way, a discussion of problematic and preferred terminology, and suggestions for editorial guidelines.

Gregory Younging, a member of the Opaskwayak Cree Nation in Northern Manitoba, has been the managing editor of Theytus Books, the first Aboriginal-owned publishing house in Canada, for over 13 years. Elements of Indigenous Style evolved from the house style guide Gregory developed at Theytus in order to ensure content was consistent and respectful.
