An exemplar of Indigenous Studies writing, epistemologically, theoretically and methodologically
Us Women, Our Ways, Our world is a collection of writings on women and Aboriginal identity from 14 senior Aboriginal academics and community leaders.
The collection engages with questions such as:
- What makes Aboriginal women strong?
- Why are grandmothers so important (even ones never met)?
- How is the connection to country different for Aboriginal people compared to non-Aboriginal people's love of nature or sense of belonging to an area?
- What is Aboriginal spirituality?
These writings are generous, inclusive and considerate of the non-Aboriginal reader's feelings. They are hopeful for the future, with an emphasis on acknowledging, joining with, collaborating and caring.
