Media Awareness Network

I discovered this to be a great resource for Media and Education Resources for Parents and Teachers. It has a link that is dedicated to breaking the myths on Media Stereotyping of all types of minority groups. There is an article titled ‘Aboriginal People in the News’ that discusses the media portrayal of aboriginal people. It talks about how “Many of the myths and misperceptions that persist among non-aboriginal people are perpetuated by no communication, poor communication, or one-sided communication (Bud White, Royal Commission of Aboriginal Peoples, 1998). In this modules readings, a lot of the focus is on communication – how we communicate, how the media communicates, and how our perceptions are based on the information we receive.
