AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Examines contemporary songs by Australian indigenous women and songs about them by Australian indigenous men. An outline of the evolution of Aboriginal rock music situates the discussion within an historical context in which music has been expressive of Aboriginal peoples' political struggles. Using the lyrics of Aboriginal rock music as texts, the author identifies some broad categories of men's and women's songs and considers gender's relevance to race and racism and Aboriginal women's survival of colonialism.
