    Welcome to this small collection of biographical stories that capture the experience of growing up in Australia as an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander person. The authors range in age from young adults to older women and men but common to all of their experience is resilience and respect.

    These stories are published by BlackWords as a result of an overwhelming volume of stories submitted to Black Inc. for consideration in the print collection edited by Dr Anita Heiss. We were offered the opportunity to participate in making these important stories available by Anita and Black Inc. publisher, Aviva Tuffield. 

    As an online publication, Growing Up Indigenous in Australia can continue to grow. Please consider submitting your story here.
