— Appears in: JASAL , vol. 14 no. 3 2014; The BlackWords Essays 2015; (p. 2)
'In the 1960s Oodgeroo Noonuccal (then Kath Walker) hit the literary limelight as Australia’s first published ‘Aboriginal poet’ and since then Aboriginal writers have used their work as a form of self-definition and to defend our rights to our identity. Many authors are inspired by the need to redress historical government definitions of Aboriginality, to reclaim pride in First Nation status, to explain the diversity of Aboriginal experience, and to demonstrate the realities and complexities of ‘being Aboriginal’ in the 21st century.'

'Boori Monty Pryor and Jan Ormerod’s Shake a Leg is an exciting children’s book from a gifted Murri storyteller. It is reviewed here by three members of one Wiradjuri family — an 11-year old school boy (Jesse), a K–12 classroom teacher with experience in tertiary and vocational education (Beatrice) and a researcher (Lawrence), who examine how representations of Aborigines affect community engagement with schools.'  (Introduction)
