Sister Girl: The Writings of Aboriginal Activist and Historian Jackie Huggins

As a widely respected cultural educator and analyst, Huggins offers an Aboriginal view of the history, values and struggles of Indigenous people. Sister Girl examines many topics, including community action, political commitment, the tradition and value or oral history, and government intervention in Aboriginal lives.
