“I found my voice”
Indigenous narratives enduring through
digital participation
Leesa Watego
@IscariotMedia and @DeadlyBloggers
Current writings by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander
people belong within a cultural and historical continuity that
predates the invasion whilst utilising, adapting and
challenging the written genres and
forms of the colonising culture.
Anita Heiss
Representation of Indigenous People in the Media
● Representations of Aboriginal people
are informed by the media.
● “Theatre of pathology” Fiona Nicholls
“We have been portrayed … as
negligent and abusive parents,
extremely violent, sexually abusive,
corrupt, alcoholic, substance abusers
and bludgers on welfare, suffering from
cultural disfunction …”
Aileen Moreton-Robinson, 2012

Social Media / ICT
2. Research Findings
3. How you can start
blogging
RayGates
www.raygates.me
The majority of research has
been about Indigenous People &
Social Media and/or about
Indigenous People’s
engagement with ICTs.
Is blogging more akin to ‘media’
and ‘communication’ than
‘technology’?
My research
Feminism, Fashion, Design,
Lifestyle, Politics, Education,
Indigenous Organisations,
Language, Culture, Health,
Well-being, Professional,
Writers, Literature, Business,
Arts,
● Only a small percentage of
Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander
people
● Platforms - Blogger, Wordpress,
Tumblr. Majority do not have self-
hosted spaces
● Small percentage have more than
one blog
● All self-taught. A few have
attended workshops.
Responses -
Why do you blog?
1. Expression - share my stories, my
life, my ideas, my travels,
2. Strategic - build a professional
profile
3. Activism - blogging is about
Freedom + Empowerment - “no
one can stop me”,
4. Professional - income generation

Racism and other forms of discrimination
● Of respondents, only a small
percentage indicated they had
experienced racism as a result of
their blogging.
● Usually in the comments section.
Responses -
● Most indicated they would not
be hesitant about writing
something because of the
likelihood of racist attack.
● A few indicated that they have
deleted tweets after making
them.
● “some non-Indigenous people
Storify tweets out of context”
Have you experienced racism as a result of
blogging?
Do you self-censor your posts to limit racist
responses?
Advice to others
concerned about racism -
● Take the good with the bad (like
all of life)
● Use a pseudonym if you’re
concerned
● Take time to post (sleep on it, edit
again, before you publish)
● There will always be haters, be
courageous
● Don’t take it personally
● Know the risks before you start.
Think about privacy before you
start
● Build a supportive network
● Do not read the comments

General comments
Because of blogging ...
● I feel less alone
● I’ve found my voice
● I’ve found new direction, career
● I’ve made new friends and
partnerships
Blogging ...
● takes too much time
● is great, but the Australian media &
trolls make it very tough for
Indigenous voices
=> Write what you love, don’t think of
the $ yet
Aboriginal Oz Blog
http://aboriginaloz.blogspot.com.au
On Dusk
http://ondusk.blogspot.com.au
Blogging, & other forms of online publication, allow writers to define
themselves (and their Aboriginality). It can provide a space where
First Nations Peoples can play, explore, create, debate, rant and
vent, satirise, and philosophise the world in which we live.
Online publication, like other forms of publication, are defined by
particular structures. Issues of access, ownership, permanence,
and security all impact on the effectiveness of online publication for
First Nations Peoples. But the potential to throw down or bypass
the gatekeepers of traditional publication is too great to ignore.
- increased professional profile
- share expertise
- improve your writing
- experiment with ideas
- connect with others in the field
- express your opinion and/or
position
Why would I want to begin blogging?

YOU DO NOT NEED TO
BLOG!
Blogging is NOT about
technology, it’s about
communication
ONLY SHARE WHAT YOU’RE
COMFORTABLE SHARING
Only share what you’re
comfortable sharing
1. Write about innovations in your
school or system.
2. Write about educational articles or
theories that influence your
thinking and/or your practice
3. Thoughts & quotes
4. Raise questions about your
practice in a thoughtful and
reflective way. Show examples of
your work
5. Showcase innovations by other
educators
6. Be you
What can you write about?
Adapted from: What should a networked educational leader tweet about: http://georgecouros.ca/blog/archives/1810

  • 17. Blogging, & other forms of online publication, allow writers to define themselves (and their Aboriginality). It can provide a space where First Nations Peoples can play, explore, create, debate, rant and vent, satirise, and philosophise the world in which we live. Online publication, like other forms of publication, are defined by particular structures. Issues of access, ownership, permanence, and security all impact on the effectiveness of online publication for First Nations Peoples. But the potential to throw down or bypass the gatekeepers of traditional publication is too great to ignore.
