It makes readily available the small amount of surviving information from historical records.

The language is now called by its many clan names, including Gadigal in the Sydney city area and Dharug in Western Sydney. The word for Aboriginal person in this language is `yura', this word been used to help identify the language, with the most common spellings being Iyora and Eora. The Sydney Language is ideal for anyone interested in learning more about the language and culture of the Aboriginal owners of what is now called Sydney.

              Fighting Hard tells a history of the Aborigines Advancement League, the oldest Aboriginal organisation in Australia. As both a welfare and activist body, the League can be seen as the 'mother' of all Aboriginal Victorian community organisations, having spawned a diverse range of ...organisations. The League influenced the fight for civil rights and took a stand against the government's assimilation policy. Its activism with government and the United Nations predates the better known Tent Embassy and provided a Victorian, national and international perspective on Aboriginal affairs. Over the years the League has proven that despite the pervasive mythology, Aboriginal people can successfully govern their own organisations. In particular, the League has proven its capacity for managing good governance while maintaining Aboriginal cultural values.

              The late 1920s marked an extraordinary protest by an Australian Aboriginal man on the streets of London. Standing outside Australia House, cloaked in tiny skeletons, Anthony Martin Fernando condemned the failure of British rule in his country. Drawn from an extensive search in ar...chives from Australia and Europe, this is the first full-length study of Fernando's life and the self-professed mission that lasted half his adult life. A moving account, it chronicles the various forms of action taken by Fernando--from pamphlets on the streets of Rome to speeches in the famous Speakers' Corner in Hyde Park--and brings to light previously unknown details about his extraordinary life in Australia and overseas.

              The Difference Identity Makes: Indigenous Cultural Capital in Australian cultural fields

              Through the struggles of Indigenous Australians for recognition and self-determination it has become common sense to understand Australia as made up of both Indigenous and non-Indigenous people and things. But in what ways is the Indigenous/non-Indigenous distinction being used a...nd understood? In The Difference Identity Makes, thirteen Indigenous and non-Indigenous academics examine how this distinction structures the work of cultural production and how Indigenous producers and their works are recognised and valued. The editors introduce this innovative collection of essays with a path-finding argument that `Indigenous cultural capital' now challenges all Australians to re-position themselves within a revised scale of values. Each chapter looks at one of five fields of Australian cultural production: sport, television, heritage, visual arts and music, revealing that in each the Indigenous/non-Indigenous distinction has effects that are specific. This brings new depth and richness to our understanding of what `Indigeneity' can mean in contemporary Australia. In demonstrating the variety of ways that 'the Indigenous' is made visible and valued the essays provide a powerful alternative to the `deficit' theme that has continued to haunt the representation of Indigeneity.

              Protest, Land Rights and Riots: Postcolonial struggles in Australia in the 1980s

              Protest, Land Rights and Riots: Postcolonial struggles in Australia in the 1980s (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              The 1970s was a period of unprecedented political agency and legislative change in Aboriginal people's struggles for the recognition of postcolonial rights. What is significant is that they didn't just seek rights to be granted to them, but for some measure of rights to be restor...ed to them. Against this background, rural communities where large Aboriginal populations lived, were in foment as a consequence of political and economic change, major structural change, social fragmentation and unparalleled unemployment. Politically, neoliberalism became the new orthodoxy recasting the state's role in the economy and redefining government programs and services. In Protest Land Rights and Riots, Barry Morris shows how those policies targeted those least integrated socially and culturally and who enjoyed fewer legitimate economic opportunities. The so-called riots, protests and law-and-order campaigns of the time captured much of the tense relations that existed between Indigenous people, the police and the criminal justice system.
