Aboriginal Politics

Christine Fletcher
Examines Aboriginal interaction with a wide range of agencies at federal, state and local levels.
The true extent of the political role and activities of remote Aboriginal communities is largely unreported and unknown, primarily due to a lack of understanding about Aboriginal society. The myth of Aboriginal people as simply passive welfare recipients remains dominant. Aboriginal Politics examines Aboriginal interaction with a wide range of agencies at all levels of government. It gives, for the first time, equal emphasis to the importance of each of those levels, and it also takes into account government to government dealings.
