Decolonising the shelf

In 2019, to celebrate the International Year of Indigenous Languages, Tara June Winch set herself the goal to read only books by Indigenous authors.

In a passionate commentary on the process of decolonising a bookshelf, Winch has set out to review those key works – historical and contemporary; in language and English – that celebrate both the past and the enduring present of Indigenous literature.

Read the first of her ongoing series here.
