Their work pre-empts Marian Boreland's discussion of the competing voices and the relegation of Aboriginal and multicultural writers to victim spaces, essentially the confinement of Aboriginal writing to the 'other'. Their analysis brings to the forefront the continuing debate over traditionalism/pluralism versus 'mixed heritage urban Aboriginal people' who appear to do nothing different, or nothing that non-Aboriginal readers relate to as repressing Aboriginal culture.
