“The Writing Stick: Sharing Indigenous Stories” is a conference that will foster conversations on editing and publishing Indigenous stories. It is intended for Indigenous and non-Indigenous participants from all walks of life including publishers, editors, writers, storytellers, filmmakers, academics, translators, artists, and librarians. Gathering together these groups of people is crucial to discuss “best practices” when working with Indigenous creators, to learn culturally appropriate ways of working with Indigenous creators, to learn better ways of working together, and to identify useful resources. Through conversation, participants will look for wisdom and insight while exploring possible principles and guidelines for publishing and editing materials by or about Indigenous peoples.
