AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Narrative has long played a significant role in the rich First Nations
cultures of the earth, including the culture of my people, the Palyku. But in
the wake of colonialism, storytelling from an Indigenous standpoint can
be a complex task. This paper explores Indigenous standpoint theory and
examines the considerations and contexts that affect my work as a First
Nations storyteller who writes speculative fiction stories for young adults.'

    'Writing has long been recognised as a way of locating the self. As a concept, this functions in multifaceted ways, from the importance of cultural expression and representation, to philosophical and linguistic conceptualisations of subjectivity in language. Emile Benveniste wrote of the fall into language : 

    'it is in and through language that man constitutes himself as a subject, because language alone establishes the concept of 'ego' in reality, it its reality which is that of the being. '
