Summary

"We need to support those who tell the truth" -- Bess Nungarrayi Price. There is a reluctance to scrutinise and address the fundamental cultural generators of Aboriginal violence. Where violence is seen as part of culture, too often it is defended as the cultures right to practice it.

Full contents
  • Barriers to solutions : misleading statistics; Interrupted memories; Mitigating circumstances: judicial emphasis on traditional violence
  • Legitimacy of violence in traditional Aboriginal cultures : "Necessity" of violent punishment for Dreamtime sacrilege; Interpersonal violence in traditional times
  • Continuity of traditional violence: Dangerous lands; Outstations; The Yolngu of north-east Arnhem Land; Towns and cities
  • Shedding tradition's violent shackles : Aboriginal men's apology for violence; Income management as a pathway to the mainstream; From cultural compliance to personal choice.
