- Ambellin Kwaymullina, Living on Stolen Land
- Living on Stolen Land is a prose-styled look at our colonial-settler ‘present’.
- This book is the first of its kind to address and educate a broad audience about the colonial contextual history of Australia, in a highly original way.
- It pulls apart the myths at the heart of our nationhood, and challenges Australia to come to terms with its own past and its place within and on ‘Indigenous Countries’.
- This title speaks to many First Nations’ truths; stolen lands, sovereignties, time, decolonisation, First Nations perspectives, systemic bias and other constructs that inform our present discussions and ever-expanding understanding. This title is a timely, thought-provoking and accessible read.
Ambelin Kwaymullina belongs to the Palyku people of the eastern Pilbara region of Western Australia. She is a writer, illustrator and law academic who works across a range of genres including YA, science fiction, verse and non-fiction.
