Summary

"Originally titled "Applicants Historical Report" and prepared as expert evidence in the native title case known as the Single Noongan Claim, this book analyses the historiography and associated anthropology of the South-west. Coupled with Noogar oral history, it examines the survival of Noongar tradition, law and custom, proving that many of the most common misconceptions regarding the disappearance of Noogar culture have no basis in fact."--BOOK JACKET.
