Toni Morrison, at Portland State, 1975

Soooooo just in case you’d seen a few cool quotes from Toni Morrison’s 1975 lecture at Portland State this weekend but hadn’t been able to access the audio yourself, I transcribed it. 

You can download it from my site in .rtf and .pdf formats (http://bit.ly/1ofhrWl).

Please don’t sell or resell it—but do spread it like the grains of rice in a sack that fell off the back of a tall truck in the middle of the night during a tornado. Or anything else that involves wide and free distribution of something that’s tasty when cooked and properly chewed.

'Sista Girls' by Bindi Cole

The term ‘Sistagirl’ is used to describe a transgender person in Tiwi Island culture. Traditionally, the term was ‘Yimpininni’.  The very existence of the word provides some indication of the inclusive attitudes historically extended towards Aboriginal sexual minorities. Colonisation not only wiped out many indigenous people, it also had an impact on Aboriginal culture and understanding of sexual and gender expression. As Catholicism took hold and many traditions were lost, this term became a thing of the past. Yimpininni were once held in high regard as the nurturers within the family unit and tribe much like the Faafafine from Samoa. As the usage of the term vanished, tribes’ attitudes toward queer indigenous people began to resemble that of the western world and religious right. Even today many Sistergirls are excluded from their own tribes and suffer at the hands of others.

Within a population of around 2500, there are approximately 50 ‘Sistagirls’ living on the Tiwi Islands. This community contains a complex range of dynamics including a hierarchy (a queen Sistergirl), politics, and a significant history of pride and shame. The Sistagirls are isolated yet thriving, unexplored territory with a beauty, strength and diversity to inspire and challenge.
