'Writing Indigenous' indicates both the way in which Indigenous people can express and share their realities and opinions in writing, as well as how other people represent (i.e. 'write') Indigenous people and stories into our everyday reality. This unit introduces students to various genres and media of writing - official reports, journalistic reporting and commentary, creative fiction and non-fiction, family history - and their purposes, with a view to provide students with a basic knowledge of important ethical, moral and legal issues in relation to rights and ownership of 'voice' and knowledge. Students will explore and practice various genres of writing and examine the impact they can have on Indigenous communities and individuals.
