There are many common stereotypes of Aboriginal peoples.
that we are all the same and conform to the idealized image of the
naked Aborigine standing with spear in hand watching the sun set. This
is a picture which quickly dissolved into the reality of the 21st
century. We are as different as the landscapes of coast, desert,
rainforest and snowy mountains. The land is different and so are we,
the first peoples of the land.
What is the significance of dots in contemporary Aboriginal painting? How many languages were spoken in Australia before colonisation? What did the Mabo and Wik decisions mean?
With contributors from more than 50 Indigenous Australians, including Yothu Yindi lead singer Mandawuy Yunupingu, internationally acclaimed writer Herb Wharton and former social justice commissioner Mick Dodson, this guidebook gives you an overview of the main issues affecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait islander people today.
