Abstract: Brief excerpt from interview: This was an assignment [where] we had to find a representation of indigenous people that framed [them] in a certain way, and then discuss how are they being framed, what's going on... To analyze and deconstruct, we could choose what we wanted to focus on. I just focused on the whole page and what it was advertising, the titles, descriptions... I enjoyed doing this assignment because you come across it so often, but a lot of times you don't have an opportunity to critique it and take it seriously. You just have to accept it and keep going, but this time we got to deconstruct it and see what is going on.
