Selected Further Reading

We see The Little Red Yellow Black Book as a stepping-off point for readers to learn more, either by themselves, or with others. Here is a list of non-fiction publications that provide more detailed information about some of the subjects covered in the book.

The list is by no means exhaustive, for instance, it doesn’t contain fiction, drama or children’s books, nor does it include other media like audiovisual materials and websites (see also Audiovisual and Links/Other Resources on this site). Australia has an abundance of excellent Indigenous cultural creators and we recommend you take the time to explore their work.

For further research into materials that might be of interest, visit Mura®, the AIATSIS Library and Audiovisual collections gateway. The new AIATSIS Pathways, provides headings for place names, language groups, people and subjects relating to Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander studies.
