land and language: translating aboriginal cultures

Peter Cole


this article arose from my experience reviewing films books theatre dance art

I hadn’t realized I was reviewing a conference until I’d written it up
together with four other conferences all of which blended into my phd dissertation

it was a delight to attend an aboriginal conference
where all presenters were aboriginal rather than white indian experts
the lingering feeling was of delight camaraderie mutual nurturance community

any mishearings or other mis-takes in this article relating to the
conference I unreservedly blame on coyote raven and sasquatch
who kept putting their paws wings beaks hands and such
in the way of my ears eyes and nose as much as they could
any praise for this work I disclaim personally deferring it rather
to narrative chance chance operations and trickster discourse
