An amazing story


An amazing story read quietly inside then said out loud for all to hear

just a whitefella who’s learned to listen

that’s all


we belong to this story

and it belongs to us


it became part of my family’s dreaming


Inuit short stories

nineteenth – century anti-colonial novellas

Native American chants

and desert poetry
