Further General Reading & Resources

* These recommendations are a small selection blending local and comparative works, from a variety of disciplinary perspectives, that speak to some of the broader themes associated with place-names and Indigenous Rights; they do not necessarily reflect the views of The Name Matters or the Tla'amin Nation – they are provided by our team as a tool to support our collective learning journey.
