‘For each writer, poet, storyteller, artist and orator included in this collaborative project labor within complex sets of relationships and connections that both define and remake their unique places in the web of existence, while being generative of fresh permutations and visionary insights that can carry us all more tenderly and safely into the future rapt in the twirling, swirling and circling systems of time, space and the mysteries of being.’
‘On Native and Indigenous Pasts, Presents and Futures in the Land Through Memory, Image and Storytelling’, Billy J. Stratton, University of Denver

A correction needs to be noted in Samia Goudie’s piece ‘Salt Water Dancing’, on p.71-2, the word ‘Booglebah’ should be spelt ‘Boogelbah’. Apologies to the traditional custodians and community of speakers of the Bundjalung language for this error.
