There is a long, unfortunate history of appropriation and misrepresentation of Indigenous peoples in literature. As writing and publishing spheres encourage more inclusivity, editors must also be sensitive to the content they are tasked with editing. Even some of the most well-meaning authors may find themselves writing inauthentic or offensive passages when writing about culturally sensitive topics.
