Woven Histories, Dancing Lives: Torres Strait Islander Identity, Culture and History
Aboriginal Studies Press, 2004 - Social Science - 313 pages
"Woven Histories, Dancing Lives is a collection of essays that communicates the unique histories and cultures of Torres Strait Islanders to a broad audience. Not only have Islanders long absorbed the cultural influences from two surrounding landmasses and, more recently, negotiated the development of two nations in the region, their lives have been transformed by 150 years of immigration and new economic and political conditions. In this collection, readers will discover the remarkable cultural diversity that has emerged from this history." "The contributors offer new reflections on inter-ethic relationships, identity concerns, gender relations and the political struggles of Islanders."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
