AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'From the cover to its conclusion, Tiwi Story: Turning History Downside Up leads readers with care and consideration through a nuanced and varied understanding of Australian histories. Tiwi Story offers outsiders physical evidence of oral histories that have been well known and distributed among communities in the northern Countries. In so doing, Tiwi Stories challenges the narratives on which White Australia crafts, hones and weaponises an identity of ownership not only over land, waterways and skies, but also over stories and knowing the past. Tiwi Story, as the Tiwi historian and educator Mavis Kerinaiua tells readers, is a history intended to act as a form of truth-telling leading to “healing” (1)—a point that carries even greater significance after the recent “no” vote on an Australian Voice to Parliament.' (Introduction)
