Indigenous publishing companies play an important role in raising the profile of Indigenous materials in the publishing industry. They do this through sharing Indigenous stories, supporting Indigenous writers and illustrators, and printing materials in Indigenous languages.
This research guide offers an overview of Indigenous publishers, distributors, and news media, and also introduces alternative modes of publishing, such as zines and podcasts. The guide also provides links to bookstores in the Vancouver area with strong Indigenous collections.
