about

Like all of our contemporary art our stories are never “one thing.” Among the works you'll find here are very few laughs just for the sake of laughing. In each of the pieces lives a teacher; there is hurt, there is thought, there is culture, colonization, spirituality and on and on. Some are introspective, others gaze on the big broad world but none of them are “just funny."—From the introduction by Susan M. Beaver

This year’s theme, "Shaking the Belly: Releasing the Sacred Clown," regales the reader with stories about legendary tricksters, satirical dances, comical legends and anecdotes created to offset the seriousness of ceremonies, politics and day-to-day aboriginal life. Explore the wide range of aboriginal humorous devices with authors across the continent.
