Should Settlers write First Nations’ characters? If we write place-based narratives or histories that are empty of First Nations characters then we feed the Terra Nullius Lie. But if we do, how can we write so we don’t fall into the same old Settler mistakes of writing Tokenism, imposing White Voice, or appropriating First Nations’ Cultures? This workshop explores the maxim ‘Connection – Compassion – Collaboration’ to develop First Nations Characters respectfully. This workshop will be a guided self-exploration of these three Principles.
