AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'When we consider the regions where Indigenous Australians live today, we wonder how they came to be in these places. How did people from central and northern Australia, living today in Aboriginal communities or small towns, make their way from traditional lands to these settlements and how did they understand their journey? This marvellous book reveals the different trajectories of two sisters who recount their transition from a hunter-gatherer life to life in a small rural town.'  (Introduction)

    'In this issue of Australian Aboriginal Studies we present a diversity of articles. Michael Rowland considers the revival of the caricature of the ‘noble savage’— or ‘ecologically noble savage’ existing in harmony with nature—that he has identified in some recent publications on environmental issues, and discusses negative implications of the concept. In doing so, he faces the possibility that such a critique might be seen as an attack on indigeneity, but is bolstered by the observation that his criticisms are shared by some Indigenous Australian scholars.'  (Editorial introduction)
