Summary
"Explores the outcomes of the editorial relationship for three foundational Indigenous women writers, Oodgeroo Noonuccal (formerly Kath Walker), Margaret Tucker and Monica Clare. These women wrote their life-story narratives in the 1970s, drawing upon their rich lives as dogged advocates of Aboriginal rights. Their manuscripts addressed experiences of dispossession, racism, forced child removal, and the struggle to right these situations. These distinctly Aboriginal priorities, perspectives and voices were most vulnerable to editorial alteration. The author examines the nature of the cross-cultural collaborations between these Indigenous writers and their white editors and demonstrates how the transformation of their manuscripts into published texts came at a political price" -- back cover
