Fully reviewed guide containing:

The Indian Country Stylebook for Editors, Writers, and Journalists will be published in February 2016 by Kitsap Publishing.

The Indian Country Stylebook is patterned after the Associated Press Stylebook for familiarity and ease of use. The fully reviewed guide contains more than 100 entries, with correct spellings, word usage, and legal references; a briefing on American Indian Law; a briefing on news-gathering in Indian Country; a directory of indigenous nations in Washington; and a directory of Indian country media in Washington.

“Indian Country Stylebook for Editors, Reporters and Writers” is designed to help its users understand Indian Country and its customs, cultures and laws. The guidebook evolved after a panel discussion, “Tribal Nations and the Media,” at the 2013 Washington Newspaper Publishers Association convention in Olympia. Questions asked at that conference made it clear that such a guidebook would be helpful:

  • Does the First Amendment apply to journalists covering stories on Indian Reservations?
  • What is “Indian country”?
  • What authority do Tribal governments have on- and off-reservation?
  • What are the proper terms for the articles of clothing someone wears at a gathering?

The following individuals participated in the creation of the stylebook: Richard Walker, Mexican/Yaqui, an editor for Sound Publishing Co. and correspondent for Indian Country Today; Jackie Jacobs, Lumbee, media relations coordinator for the Quileute Tribe and principal of JTalentgroup, a Seattle-based Public Relations and Marketing agency; and Gabriel Galanda, Round Valley Indian Tribes, and Amber Penn-Roco, Chehalis Tribe, Galanda Broadman, PLLC. The cover, “All Rights Reserved,” was designed by the artist Louie Gong, Nooksack.

The stylebook was published as an ebook in December 2014.
