dc.description.abstract The proposal investigates the 3 R’s: the reflection, recruitment & retention of Aboriginal people in Canadian media journalism. How are Aboriginal people represented in Canadian journalism? How are Aboriginal journalists recruited & retained at journalism schools & in journalism institutions? And, what can be done to improve the reflection of Aboriginal journalism & improve the experience of students & Aboriginal journalists in Canadian journalism as they are encouraged to develop careers in this area. This particular proposal involves a partnership with the Strategic Alliance of Broadcasters for Aboriginal Reflection (SABAR). SABAR is a group of mainstream broadcasters dedicated to working together with Aboriginal media organizations to increase the contribution & participation of Aboriginal people on-air & behind the scenes in all aspects of the Canadian broadcasting industry.
