Sample text

Both women, with degrees of success, resisted the impositions of the colonisers. Both women journeyed back to reconnect with family, with Country and with the Ancestors who created it and them. Since this text is also about history, I have drawn texts together based on the approximate eras in which the women lived. Alice Nannup, for example, was born in the Pilbara area of Western Australia in 1911. Sally Morgan was born in the 1950s in the south of the same state. Their experiences have almost no points of comparison.

These three texts therefore offer a rare chance for a three-way comparison of historical events from differing perspectives,15 Thonemann's prologue to Tell the White Man suggests that the impetus for recording the history into written form came fiom Buludja herself (Thonemann 1949: 15), although, since it is Thonemann who is the recorder, we have no way of knowing if this is actually so. Interestingly, Joy Hooton, a literary critic, dismisses the text as 'gross ventriloquism' (1990: 334)' delegitimating Tell the White Man because of the process of its recording and disregarding the substance of Buludja's story.
