Emma is a Tasmanian Aboriginal author
who uses the pseudonym "Worawee" to
write the Tasmanian Aboriginal Cultural Series. She writes from the
perspective of her great-grandmothers view of the Traditional Aboriginal
culture before the invasion of Europeans.
the Traditional name I gave to my great grandmother Emma Wilson. The historical
books dealing with the culture of the Traditional Tasmanian Aboriginal People
is her heritage to me.
It is for this
reason that I cannot put my name to her history and her culture. I
am extremely proud of the heritage that Emma left to me and the Ancestry
that she bequeathed to my family through my father. I believe that
her gift to me was an all consuming desire to rediscover the past
and the ability to retell our history as it really was, not as non-Aboriginal
people insist it must have been.
