MetadataShow full item record
In his text I Come from Here Nyoongar novelist Kim Scott suggests by means of yarning that the authority of Indigenous people and language is primary to an authentic sense of place. Scott uses an accumulative, episodic, and personal narrative style to argue that the return to, and consolidation of cultural material in, a community of descendants of the informants must be founded upon principles of community development. Collaboration between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people by sharing of ancestral material with ever widening, concentric circles is how this process results in respect and partnership that empowers community life. © Purdue University.
