The Authors / Interpreters, a Twig, and Paradise: In the shadows of Maratja Dhamarraṉdji, Emmanuel Garibay, and Mariana Waqa

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

Audre Lorde declared many moons back that the master’s tools will never dismantle the master’s house, yet many biblical scholars still chase meaning potentials (Blount) with the master’s tools. And the master’s house stands. My aim in this article is not to dismantle but to make space in the master’s house. I take up one of the master’s tools – writing – along with native tools – story, conversation, art, poetry – as alternatives for Our Discipline (Yee). There are limits and stumbling blocks with native tools and native wisdom (e.g., in Oceania, local authorities now occupy the master’s house), but they have potentials for adding space to the master’s house.
