What happens if we stop looking at Indigenous literacy in terms of deficit – of what is not happening – and instead look at what is happening? An educator with 20 years' experience in Indigenous education and also a linguistic anthropologist, Inge Kral, has written a book that does just that, focussing on the Ngaanyatjarra community of Blackstone in Western Australia. It's called Talk, Text and Technology and was launched this week at Red Kangaroo Books in Alice Springs. KIERAN FINNANE reports.
