Homeland Calling

Booktopia First Nations promotion


Homeland Calling is a collection of poems created from hip-hop song lyrics that channel culture and challenge stereotypes. It celebrates words from a new generation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander voices.

Written by First Nations youth from communities all around Australia, the powerful words display a maturity beyond their years.

Edited by award-winning author and poet Ellen van Neerven, the verses in this book are the result of young artists exploring their place in the world, expressing the future they want for themselves and their communities. These young people are the future, and their passion for their culture, languages and homelands is beyond inspiring.

All royalties from the sale of the book will go towards Desert Pea Media’s training and development programs in Indigenous communities. Artwork by Gamilaroi Yuwaalaraay artist Lakkari Pitt.

Well suited for young adults and senior students.
