Indigenous Peoples: Language Guidelines

In partnership with UBC Brand, we collaborated on the development and ongoing updates of guidelines for UBC communication staff as they considered their choice of language when addressing Indigenous peoples.

The product of which is the Indigenous Peoples: Language Guidelines, versions 1.0 through 3.1 (2017-24).

This useful guide provides information on how to navigate the terminology and meanings associated with Indigenous peoples in order to produce the best — and most respectful — communication results.
