Product description

Review

"Kerwin (education, Griffith Univ., Australia) provides a valuable insider's account of Aboriginal history and engagement with Australian colonialism, with a core focus on historic land use patterns and cultural mapping and travel practices. The author sets out an effective (if somewhat polemical and occasionally overstated) argument emphasizing the need to rethink Aboriginal history in more nuanced terms than those (stereo)typically associated with classic anthropological and historical accounts of nomadic peoples and their "primitive level" of cultural, economic, and political development. The evidence compiled includes archival, ethnographic, and testimonial sources, as well as interviews with Aboriginal interlocutors. Highly recommended." "--Choice"

About the Author

Dr. Dale Kerwin is Aboriginal Research Fellow at Griffith University. His academic career has been driven by the need for a proper conversation between the colonisers' history and the first Australians' history. He began his journey to university through correspondence courses, whilst at the same time being taught by his Elders to engage with non-Aboriginal people with a view to continuing that conversation for the benefit of both communities.
