Editorial Reviews

Review

Alia has crafted an accessible book for many audiences. It is easy to read; includes critical theory that is relevant, applicable and understandable; and flows through the many points of entry for indigenous people into the new media nation...The book is scholarly, yet it also reveals the depth and span of networks created by the new media nation that can be enhanced through awareness. [It] is brave and hopeful. As a document of the many instances of indigenous media, it captures events, experiences and testimony. --International Journal of Communication

Alia should be commended for revealing a world of indigenous media use. This wide-ranging study lays a foundation for the study of how indigenous people use new media technologies, and future researchers of indigenous media use will want to use this book as a starting point. --Anthropos
