Writing Native American Characters | Writing the Other Master Class

J. K. Rowling drew negative attention from Native people for what she did in her work Magic in North America. The mistakes she made were common–very common–and also easily avoidable. In this seminar, Native scholar and activist Debbie Reese talks about the missteps Rowling and many other authors have made, why they are a problem, and offers writers strategies for avoiding them and doing better.

Topics Include:

  • Native Nationhood and Sovereignty
  • History
  • Representation and Impact
  • Cultural Appropriation
  • Language and Naming
  • Spiritual Traditions
  • Stereotypes and Tropes to Avoid
  • Researching Native Americans for Fiction
  • Worldbuilding for Speculative Fiction

The class includes both the video recording of the live seminar plus supplemental resources and reading recommendations. All class materials are online, and a download link will be emailed to you after you complete your purchase.

Accessibility: The class video is closed captioned and a transcript of the video is available to everyone who purchases the seminar.
