Summary

The 2007 Federal Government intervention in NT Aboriginal communities provided impetus for the churches to review their own efforts on behalf of Indigenous communities. Using his personal experience in the Catholic parishes of Kununurra and Halls Creek in East Kimberley, the author drafts a new approach to mission and church presence.
