AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In this collection, which stands as an ode to the matriarchy and reinvigorates the art of letter-writing, poet Charmaine Papertalk Green imprints her multilingualism into the Australian consciousness through a trail of correspondence between herself and her mother. Nganajungu Yagu acknowledges the horrors of Australia’s colonial past while staying true to the spirit of the Aboriginal women who have carried the weight of this nation on their shoulders. Papertalk Green explains early on, “I always look back because my Ancestors lived back there”, and this theme remains consistent throughout.' (Introduction)
