      New Book:

      THE NEW MEDIA NATION: Indigenous Peoples and Global Communication.
      By Valerie Alia. Oxford and New York: Berghahn Books, 2010.

      Summary
      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 the circumpolar north, and
      First Nations peoples in the Yukon and southern Canada and the United
      States.

      About the Author
