Notes

  • Epigraph: Make us mates, not poor relations,
    Citizens, not serfs on stations.
    Must we native old Australians
    In our own land rank as aliens?
    Banish bans and conquer caste,
    Then we'll win our own at last. (Aboriginal Charter of Rights, Kath Walker)

    'The resurgence of Indigenous culture and thought continues. Confident, smart and sensitive Aboriginal artists, writers and theorists create world-class work in every genre. Tough and autonomous critical milieux have developed, liberated from colonial and modern mythologies about Aboriginal culture and its relations to Western ways of thinking and seeing. Flourishing Indigenous arts and literary scenes have grown around a new generation of Aboriginal publishers, curators, writers, editors, film-makers, choreographers and savvy arts entrepreneurs...'
