The USask Department of English Requirements for Essays is based in MLA style, as detailed in the MLA Handbook.
The MLA Handbook, now in its 8th edition published in 2016, is available only in print.
For Long Quotations (more than 4 lines) , indent the quote one inch from the left margin and do not use quotation marks.
On the Home tab, in the Paragraph group, click the bottom right corner to open the Paragraph dialog box.
NOTE: when you are in the body of the paper, the header will look gray.
To close the header, you can click the close button, or simply double click in the body of the document.
The Library has multiple copies in various locations. Nor Quest Library has noted that the formal MLA style does not have a format for Indigenous Elders and Knowledge Keepers so they have developed this citation style in the spirit of wahkôhtowin and reconciliation.
Unlike most other personal communications, Elders and Knowledge Keepers should be cited in-text and in the Works Cited list. The citation format for the Works Cited list is as follows: Last name, First name.
Thank you to Lorisia Mac Leod, a librarian at Nor Quest College in Edmonton, for developing this template and allowing us to share it.
Note: If you would like to approach an Elder or Knowledge Keeper for teachings, remember to follow protocol or if you are unsure what their protocol is, please ask them ahead of time.
