These voices captured in written text and other media increasingly inform our intellectual and cultural work. (If you have an interesting quote please forward to the Editor with reference) This volume is extremely signifi cant from an Indigenous cultural perspective, containing many works that afford the reader a treasured insight into the Indigenous cultural world of Australia. From the foreword by Mick Dodson (Macquarie PEN Anthology of Aboriginal Literature ) We as in the active collectives and we even as one-by-one, must drive Aboriginal knowledge creation processes. In doing this there is a need to move from the periphery of anothers world to a renewed old centre for ourselves at this particular moment in our future.
