This chapter argues that the changing materiality of writing and literacy practices has an inherently cultural dimension, requiring shifts in dominant writing practices and countercolonial literacy pedagogies. Such a shift requires relevance to the ecological world of Indigenous culture and experience, as well as mobile and creative digital environments where the materials of writing and literacy practices are constantly changing.
