Notes

  • Epigraph:
    We as Aboriginal people still have to fight to prove that we are straight out plain human beings, the same as everyone else. You know, I grew up, born o a government blanket under a palm tree. I lived under lantana bushes, I've seen more dinner times than I've ever seen dinners, I've known discrimination, I've known prejudice, I've known all of those things...but some of that is still with us [...] and it's got to be changed...
    - Neville Bonner, 1992
