Indigeneity, Language and Authenticity

Performing the Other

You ask me to dress traditionally,
silver wearing blue down,
just like the tourist brochures promised –
asking for the authentic me,
you find the time to lament
the lack of  spun pewter around my neck;
This raised fist is all you’ll ever get.
