The portrayal of identity in contemporary Aboriginal writing is as varied and multifaceted as the notion of ' Aboriginality' itself. This thesis explores some of the issues and aspects of identity arising from Indigenous literature, particularly focusing on four recent texts that each, at times loosely, falls into the category of fiction. Postcolonial theory is considered in relation to the aims of Aboriginal writing, especially as to how such theory may, or may not, contribute to the project of decolonisation.
