AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Frank and Vinnie are modern day headhunters. They don't just want any heads, they want famous heads, heads with a price on them. Confessions of a Headhunter is a thought provoking and political exploration of the way in which iconic representations of Australia's history have typically masked indigenous realities and glorified injustice.'

Works about this Work

Aboriginal Literature in the Classroom Jeanine Leane , 2016 single work criticism
— Appears in: Teaching Australian and New Zealand Literature 2016; (p. 237-246)

'I come to write this essay first as an Aboriginal Australian, educated in both Aboriginal and Western knowledge. Before I came to postdoctoral study, I was both a secondary and tertiary educator for almost two decades. I am a creative writer of poetry and prose and am driven to write, as I believe many Aboriginal authors are, because I have always been positioned on the other side of history. Firmly believing that the personal and the professional are inseparable in educational contexts, I need to begin by grounding myself.' (Introduction)
