A vanguard of First Nations fiction writers is carrying forward the world’s oldest storytelling traditions while upending the settler narratives of our literary canon. Prominent Aboriginal researcher and writer Professor Marcia Langton chats with a panel of leading Indigenous novelists about the power of fiction to illuminate First Nations histories, cultures, and ways of thinking. Featuring Melissa Lucashenko, a Goorie author of Bundjalung heritage and 2019 Miles Franklin winner (Too Much Lip); Nardi Simpson, a Yuwaalaraay musician, educator and debut novelist (Song of the Crocodile); and Karen Wyld, an award-winning writer (Where the Fruit Falls) of Martu descent.
