AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Like other members of the Stolen Generation, Bob Randall was taken away from his family by white authorities. He was seven years old. As an adult he began the long process of finding his family again...and establishing a career as an Aboriginal educator. He is now a renowned singer and performer...

Woven through Randall's story like the Rainbow Serpent is a clear account of the Aboriginal worldview and philosophy...At once a gripping autobiography and an outstanding lucid account of Aboriginal spirituality and belief...' Source: Publisher's blurb

Works about this Work

Kin-fused Reconciliation : Bringing Them Home, Bringing Us Home Fiona Probyn , 2007 single work criticism
— Appears in: Australian Humanities Review , August no. 42 2007;
'Fiona Probyn-Rapsey discusses the biopolitical management of Indigenous people within the contemporary nation through an analysis of white liberal discourse on Reconciliation. She looks specifically at the image of the nation as family and the pedagogic nationalist argument for extending the "white" family to include Aboriginal kin and to "bind Aboriginality to whiteness". She analyses how a wide range of Indigenous life narratives (including those by Morgan, Russell, Pilkington-Garimara, Lalor, Scott and Brown, Kinnane, Simon and Randall) describe familial relations between white and Indigenous family members. She argues, in her formulation of the phrase "kin-fused Reconciliation", that a liberal "extended family" model of the Nation is potentially assimilationist' (Anne Brewster and Fiona Probyn-Rapsey, Introduction).
