Whilst there is still a long way to go to reach parity with non-Aboriginal issuance, since the 1980s there has been an upsurge in the published work of documented processes of colonization and their place (or lack of place) within them. Established Agoriginal writers of historical fiction like the late Ruby Langford Ginibi, Sally Morgan, Doris Pilington (Nugi Garimara) and Sam Watson have been joined in more recent times by a new proliferation of award- winning authors such as Kim Scott and Alexis Wright. Likewise, the creative production of filmmakers Beck Cole, Tracey Moffatt, Sally Riley and Warwick Thornton has received wide critical acclaim for its contribution to the re- insertion of Indigenous presence into the landscape of white Australian history and the destabilization of its master narrative status.
