Reviewing Song Spirals

The Deep History team have been inspired by the recent publication Song Spirals: Sharing Women’s Wisdom of Country through Songlines, written by the Gay’wu Group of Women, and were pleased to see it win the non-fiction category in the Prime Minister’s Literary Awards.

The ANU’s Stories Reading Group hosted a lively discussion about the book and Ann McGrath and Julie Rickwood each wrote reviews of the book, now published on-line and which you can read here:

Julie Rickwood’s review:

Ann suggested that it is “a poetic exploration of Indigenous women’s ontologies” while Julie stated that it is “a unique invitation into Aboriginal women’s traditional cultural practices”.

Both were captivated by Song Spirals and highly recommend it.
