AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'What a woman! Reading an amazing story such as Isabel Flick: the many lives of an extraordinary Aboriginal woman is a humbling experience. One is overwhelmed by the sheer number and diversity of experiences that filled Isabel’s life; but in sharing her stories Isabel reminds us of all the unacknowledged Aboriginal women who, like her, have refused to give up hope, who have persisted in their struggle to achieve human rights for their people. Isabel’s story reveals a woman who is warm, caring and sensitive, who like so many Aboriginal women must draw constantly on her own strength to overcome continual obstacles, to pursue her dream and achieve her goals. In my opinion, Isabel Flick, in this account of her life, personifies all those women who give their lives to the Aboriginal cause, and we, individually and collectively, need to value and acknowledge their contribution.'  (Introduction)

    'This collection of papers was originally inspired by a workshop on native title and archaeology hosted as part of the Australasian Society for Historical Archaeology Conference held in Adelaide in 2000. It received further impetus due to repeated calls for practice guidelines as well as questions about the relevance of archaeological evidence in native title from practitioners, lawyers, native title representative bodies and the requirements of expert witnesses involved in Federal Court trials.'  (Editorial introduction)
