Indigenous Australian Voices: A Reader

Front Cover
Jennifer Sabbioni, Kay Schaffer, Sidonie Smith
Rutgers University Press, 1998 - Fiction - 310 pages
An impressive collection of the poetry, artwork, and prose of thirty-six contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander writers and artists. . . . The world views and the expression of the contributors are compelling. . . . It is an exploration of 'the dreaming' that organizes the text, in the sense that individual and kinship relationships to the origin stories of 'dreamtime' inform both a resistance to the genocidal heritage of Australian colonization as well as a unique focus for indigenous identity.
