DESCRIPTION

Wilomin Noongar. What does that mean? Aunty Hazel reckons the wilo (curlew) can completely camouflage itself. It closes its eyes and just lies there, motionless. You only see it when its eyes open. So sometimes those of us who are disconnected and dispossessed only become visible when our eyes are opened to history. Acknowledging our people -- wanting recognition and welcome -- we call out.Award-winning novelist Kim Scott and his elder, Hazel Brown, have created a monumental family history of the Wilomin Noongar people. Kayang & Me is a powerful story of community and belonging, revealing the deep and enduring connections between family, country, culture and history that lie at the heart of Indigenous identity.Praise for the Book'... in recording Brown's vivid oral histories and marrying them on the page with his own musings and research, he has fashioned a new kind of message stick.' Weekend Australian'This book is brilliant. Read it because it is imaginatively conceived and beautifully crafted. And read it because it matters.' Sydney Morning Herald'... Hazel Brown and Kim Scott have managed to reclaim the voice of country from the voice of colonisation, and in doing so, light a gentle yet powerful path back to self-identity for those lost along the way.' Koori Mail

'Kayang And Me' is a powerful story of community and belonging, revealing the deep and enduring connections between family, country, culture and history that lie at the heart of Indigenous identity.
