Example text

The peoples of the Lower Murray have had over at least 170 years of accommodation and resistance. They have lived under different political and administrative regimes. Following the 1967 referendum, which gave the federal government concurrent rights with the states to legislate for Aboriginal peoples and required that they be counted in the national census, new spaces and resources have been made available.

In this sense they are politicised. There is no denying this. But what are the forces shaping their interest and how much do these political forces account for the content of their beliefs? Native American poet Linda Hogan (1987:126) says of her grandmother’s move from an EuroAmerican life back to “a very traditional one in Oklahoma… Maybe any life of resistance to mainstream culture is traditional Indian”.
