Summary

"Aboriginal Business is an ethnographic snapshot of the Warumungu people, the traditional owners of the country on which the remote Northern Territory town of Tennant Creek lie. The author examines both the colonial past and the contemporary practices of alliance-making that set the stage for an alternative future, rerouting the national and global narratives that still seek to confine Indigenous people to the margins."--Publisher's website.
