bangarraIndigenous people continue to make a very visible contribution to the production of the arts in Australia. Indigenous texts, which convene a non-indigenous audience (in addition to indigenous audiences), perform crucial work in brokering new configurations of intersubjectivity. These essays, which span two editions of Altitude, mount close readings of indigenous literature and song, ranging over the genres of life story, poetry, the novel, drama, country and western and traditional song. They extend our understanding of the significance and transformation of these genres and their impact on a range of difference audiences.
