Blogs & Podcasts

Since the iPortal was launched in 2005, there have been some significant changes in internet technologies and in the multimedia landscape. Many of these changes have resulted in increased access to media production for previously marginalized people and communities. Indigenous communities in Canada have been especially effective in harnessing online streaming, publishing, and social media; and in using those technologies to bypass traditional media gatekeepers. The result is a growing community of artists, academics, and activists that are using internet based communication technologies to share their stories in their own voices, to communicate their own perspectives, and to challenge the dominant media discourses and representations of Indigenous peoples. The following feed links to a series of Indigenous written/focused blogs and podcasts. These have not been curated for their scholarly value, but rather they have been selected to showcase the variety of perspectives that exist under the label Indigenous content
