Recollections of Brewarrina Aboriginal Mission, Ruth Latukefu , 1979 single work life story
'In 2013 I revisited Brewarrina Aboriginal Mission after nearly 60 years. This paper describes what life was like for Aboriginal people living on the mission during my fieldwork in 1954. Information from Aboriginal informants at that time is supplemented by Jimmie Barker, whose memoir records 20 years as handyman on the mission (1920-42). There was historical continuity in racist attitudes, fears of child removal, suppression of languages and culture, inadequate schooling and authoritarian controls by the managers of the New South Wales Aborigines Welfare Board. People felt ashamed to be seen by white people doing anything traditionally Aboriginal, and skin colour and Aboriginal features were socially stigmatised. Apart from its cemetery, Brewarrina Mission, established in 1897, was closed in 1965 and later demolished.' (Abstract)

BlackWords : Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island Writers and Storytellers, Christine Regan , Jakelin Troy , 2014 single work criticism
Established in 2007 by Aboriginal writers and scholars, BlackWords is a digital humanities online literature resource devoted to the creative writing and oral storytelling of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians. In 2013, Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies, began a major new project in BlackWords.'An academically rigorous vehicle for the researching and teaching of Aboriginal literature and orature, the value of BlackWords lies in the great cultural and political importance of the literature emergent since the 1960s, and in the central role storytelling has for millennia played in traditionally oral Aboriginal cultures...'

Wal-Walang-al Ngardanginy : Hunting the Songs (of the Australian South-west), Clint Bracknell , 2014 single work criticism
'Given the paucity of research pertaining to Indigenous vocal music in the south-west of Western Australia and the present endangered state of traditional music knowledge in the region, this paper discusses contemporary community-driven Noongar language revitalisation activities and explores relevant archival song texts. Oral accounts and archival records from the south-west of Western Australia highlight the centrality of vocal music in the local Aboriginal (Noongar) society. Accordingly, Noongar people composed songs in response to new experiences and phenomena as colonial influence extended across the south-west in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. These compositions experiment with point-of-view, vocabulary and metaphor, indicating the ability for Noongar singing traditions to maintain continuity and intergenerational transmission while demonstrating linguistic, thematic and semantic flexibility.'
