A robust, clear eyed and provocative new Palawa story.
Boyd’s got enough on his plate between keeping a young family together and his responsibilities to land and people.
But something’s happening. Every year more and more folk are claiming to be Palawa too. Folk no-one’s heard of until now, who haven’t been ‘round before. Are they legit? Or are they ‘tick-a-box’? Who decides? And how?
If Boyd’s going to take everyone forward, they’re all going to have to go back, old mob or new, into the island’s knotty past. And they might not like what they find there.
This one will get everyone talking. It’s robust, clear-eyed and asks provocative questions. We’re pleased to introduce our 2019 Balnaves Fellow Nathan Maynard to Belvoir audiences. But I suspect we’ll be hearing a great deal more from him in years to come. – Eamon Flack
