    Abstract:
    Amanda Kane Rooks examines how select Australian Aboriginal poetry by Kevin Gilbert, Lisa Bellear, Aileen Corpus, Archie Weller, Roberta Sykes, Oodgeroo Noonuccal, Romaine Moretain and Mudrooroo Narogin subvert white, patriarchal constructions of race and gender in Australia. More specifically, Rooks argues that these poems collectively highlight how a racist and misogynistic Australian national ethos has long served to cultivate and enable the exploitation, oppression and abuse of Aboriginal women and girls in particular.
