ySister Girl : The Writings of Aboriginal Activist and Historian Jackie HugginsJackie Huggins/specialistDatasets/BlackWords ,
St Lucia:University of Queensland Press,1998Z2153951998selected work prose interview essay biography (taught in 4 units)The articles in this collection 'represent a decade of writing by Aboriginal historian and activist Jackie Huggins. These essays and interviews combine both the public and the personal in a bold trajectory tracing one Murri woman's journey towards self-discovery and human understanding...Sister Girl examines many topics, including community action, political commitment, the tradition and value of oral history, and government intervention in Aboriginal lives. It challenges accepted notions of the appropriateness of mainstream feminism in Aboriginal society and of white historians writing Indigenous history. Closer to home, there are accounts of personal achievement and family experience as she revisits the writing of Auntie Rita with her mother Rita Huggins - the inspiration for her lifework.'
