– Provide minimum 8 sources/references including 1 Journal Article (online or physical copy), 1 book reference other than your textbook (physical copy only), 1 Government document (electronic or physical copy) and 1 report from a private organization (electronic or physical copy). NO Wikipedia, Encyclopedias, Instructor’s power points, video lectures, or dictionary sources. News articles may only be supplementary material and do not count towards the 8 sources. Personal communications must be documented adequately.
– Analyze the research they have gathered, and the points discussed in sources. To support your arguments, you MUST use correct APA citations for both direct quotes and paraphrasing.
– Pages will be numbered in the top right-hand corner.
– No abstract necessary.
– Title page MUST have: The title of your essay (Not the assignment title), your name, the class code (INDG 1220 A01), and the due date of the Assignment.

– Be aware of spelling and grammar
Anyone writing “the Aboriginals”, “The Indigenous”, “The Indians” or “The Natives” in this class will receive a 0 on the assignment. Full stop. It removes any sense of sovereignty and self-sufficiency, and it encapsulates the group of people being discussed into one monolithic group. There are several First Nations, and they each should be treated with respect.
Unless it is a direct quote from a source, I do not want to see “The Aboriginals”, “The Natives”, “The Indians” or “The Indigenous”. Qualify your statements and add a descriptor at the end.
IE: Indigenous communities, Indigenous Peoples, Indigenous cultures, etc. This also applies to European nations as well. Instead of “The French” use “French traders/ settlers/ fighters”, “English or British authorities/ Government/ traders/ colonists”, “Spanish conquistadors/ sailors/ colonists”.
If you are wanting some specifics on how to discuss Indigenous peoples, check out “Elements of Indigenous Style” by Gregory Younging. An abridged version can be found https://indigenoustourism.ca/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/19-12-Style-Guide-Media-Version-v8-1.pdf

We complete each paper from scratch, and in order to make you feel safe regarding its authenticity, we check our content for plagiarism before its delivery. To do that, we use our in-house software, which can find not only copy-pasted fragments, but even paraphrased pieces of text. Unlike popular plagiarism-detection systems, which are used by most universities (e.g. Turnitin.com), we do not report to any public databases—therefore, such checking is safe.
We provide a plagiarism-free guarantee that ensures your paper is always checked for its uniqueness. Please note that it is possible for a writing company to guarantee an absence of plagiarism against open Internet sources and a number of certain databases, but there is no technology (except for turnitin.com itself) that could guarantee no plagiarism against all sources that are indexed by turnitin. If you want to be 100% sure of your paper’s originality, we suggest you check it using the WriteCheck service from turnitin.com and send us the report.
Yes. You can have a free revision during 7 days after you’ve approved the paper. To apply for a free revision, please press the revision request button on your personal order page. You can also apply for another writer to make a revision of your paper, but in such a case, we can ask you for an additional 12 hours, as we might need some time to find another writer to work on your order.
After the 7-day period, free revisions become unavailable, and we will be able to propose only the paid option of a minor or major revision of your paper. These options are mentioned on your personal order page.
