CaptureThis amazing resource is the work of Chelsea Vowel, Metis, Plains Cree speaking, LLB holding powerhouse (i’ve never met her, but have been following her online for years).  She is a go to source for me.  She tweets at @apihtawikosisan. She’s even made a video game and has a podcast called Metis in space (about scifi and indigenous issues).   On her site she blogs but has also put together what she calls a primer on Aboriginal Issues. http://apihtawikosisan.com/aboriginal-issue-primers/legal-links/  

Highly recommended for a visit.  Even if you don’t put her things on the syllabus, I think that directing your students to the blog is a really important move.  I think that generally trying to send students to indigenous media sources is part of this work, since, “digital natives” or no, they can have remarkably narrow web habits.   The web offers the possibility of seeing how current events are filtered through different perspectives.
