    Aboriginal Motherhood

    I bore down/ in pain/ to give you life/ and all the love/ I know/ I gave you wisdom/ so you learned/ to love all men/ and grow/ free and proud/ and now my child/ the battlefields bloom red/ hold true to wisdom/ courage love/ go/ bleed where your father bled

The Palm and the Fist, Denise Dixon , single work extract
'I started writing this play two years ago, finished it in Oct '98 and the editing in Feb '99. I am presently writing the music and lyrics, and have completed the first three songs. The Palm and the Fist is about family. It touches on stolen childhood, the importance of speaking positives to our kids, e.g. 'blessing our children', and imparting identity. This is the essence of who we are. We have so much to teach our non-Indigenous community about family and identity. This play and music provides a little glimpse of this.'
