#DRAFT# English-Language Exonyms and Indigenous Endonyms of Manitoba Indigenous Peoples and Languages

Endonyms are the terms used by people within their own communities. Exonyms are the terms (in this case, English-language) used by outsiders to those communities. Using exonyms are much like calling someone “Susie” when they prefer to be called “Susan” [8] — using endonyms is a step toward showing respect for the identities of community members.

Delpit & Dowdy (2002). No Kinda Sense.

“When instruction is stripped of children’s cultural legacies, then they are forced to believe that the world and all the good things in it were created by others. This leaves students further alienated from the school and its instructional goals, and more likely to view themselves as inadequate.” (p 41)

Pezone (2010). Multiculturalism is Not Enough.

“While it is important that we recognize the contributions of those like Delpit who alert us to school politics of culture and language, it is vital that we engage in analysis and action to address the structural relationships of power and domination in our society, including social, economic, _and_ cultural aspects, and how they impact educational systems.” (p 29)
