Indigenous Authors to Speak April 17

 Indigenous Authors to Speak April 17

04/01/2014 

The indigenous co-authors of the new book, Montana Justice and Other Myths Busted, will share their ideas on effective writing and teaching Thursday, April 17, at SUNY Cortland.

Sierra Adare, a Cherokee/Choctaw, and TasiwooPa api, a Comanche/Mohawk, whose text was released in January by Kendall Hunt Publishing Company, will present “Montana Justice: a Discussion with the Authors” from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Corey Union Fireplace Lounge.

Sponsored by the Campus Artist and Lecture Series and the Center for Gender and Intercultural Studies, the talk is free and open to the public. The program is geared to faculty and staff, educators and future educators.

The pair will speak about their publishing experience and their commitment to a new approach for resource materials to support writing studies in higher education.

“The talk is about what every reader should be: accessible to all and written in the scholarly manner we expect from students,” said event organizer Linda Rosekrans, lecturer in English.

Montana Justice is an anthology or collection of samples from a broad range of genre — from poetry to screenplay to academic essay — that are cited in a variety of academic formats, modeling correct use of citation methods.

Later in the program, the authors will facilitate a panel of students who have used the text, critiquing its usefulness in the college classroom.

This is Adare’s 14th book. TasiwooPa api has many articles and collaborations to his credit.

Currently a doctoral student in American and transnational studies at University at Buffalo, Adare has experimented with designing online courses that provide greater focus on the learning styles of students as well as greater accessibility for those outside of the read/write paradigm.

She is a member of the Wordcraft Circle of Native Writers and Storytellers, a pan-indigenous association seeking to ensure that the voices of indigenous and Hispanic peoples in the Americas are heard throughout the world.

TasiwooPa api, who has a master’s degree in human relations from Oklahoma State University, has conducted research that reflects a unique understanding of the needs of academic writers.
