    'Romaine Moreton's poetry is much more than that, each piece of work is a journey. Her words take the reader through time to the world of our peoples. The bitterness and anger is justified, but tempered by a strong spiritual presence...' Burraga Gutya. (source: backcover)

Rising from the black underbelly of a country that has systematically dispossessed the Indigenous, these poems echo with the call for justice, inclusion and equality.'

BlackWords : Writers on Identity Anita Heiss , 2014 single work criticism
— Appears in: JASAL , vol. 14 no. 3 2014; The BlackWords Essays 2015; (p. 2)
'In the 1960s Oodgeroo Noonuccal (then Kath Walker) hit the literary limelight as Australia’s first published ‘Aboriginal poet’ and since then Aboriginal writers have used their work as a form of self-definition and to defend our rights to our identity. Many authors are inspired by the need to redress historical government definitions of Aboriginality, to reclaim pride in First Nation status, to explain the diversity of Aboriginal experience, and to demonstrate the realities and complexities of ‘being Aboriginal’ in the 21st century.'
