A rightful place : a road map to recognition by Noel Pearson( Book )

Soon we will all decide if and how indigenous Australians will be recognised in the constitution. In this essential book, several leading indigenous writers and thinkers provide a road map to recognition. These eloquent essays show what constitutional recognition means, and what it could make possible- a fairer relationship and a renewed appreciation of an ancient culture. With remarkable clarity and power, they traverse law, history and culture to map the path to change. The contributors to A Rightful Place are Noel Pearson, Stan Grant, Rachel Perkins, Damien Freeman, Rod Little and Jackie Huggins, and the book includes a foreword by Galarrwuy Yunupingu. A Rightful Place is edited by Shireen Morris, a lawyer and constitutional reform fellow at the Cape York Institute and researcher at Monash University

Make it right! [from the AIATSIS collection] by Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies( Visual )

8 editions published between 1988 and 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Barunga, in the Northern Territory, hosts an annual festival of Aboriginal sport and culture. In 1988, 200 years after the British flag was raised in Sydney, the Festival took on a special meaning. Prime Minister Bob Hawke was invited to attend and the Festival organisers had high expectations of a political outcome. Wenten Rubuntja, Chairman of the Central Land Council, Galarrwuy Yunupingu, Chairman of the Northern Land Council, John Ah Kit, Director, of the Northern Land Council and Pat Dodson, Director of the Central Land Council, worked together to prepare a major petition representing many clans from the Northern Territory. In the form of a large collaborative painting in which clans expressed their "story for Country", and a written document, the petition asked the Prime Minister to recognise the government's obligations to Aboriginal people and for agreement to commence negotiations for an Aboriginal Treaty. Presenting the painting and statement to the Prime Minister, Galarrwuy Yunupingu's speech expressed the need to change the relations between white and Aboriginal Australia, to "make it right!". Bob Hawke's speech in reply made a clear commitment to commence Treaty negotiations in the life of the present Parliament, but this was not to happen. Kim McKenzie's beautifully filmed portrait of the festival - the preparations, the sport activities, the singing and dancing, the tensions prior to Hawke's arrival - eloquently captures the cultural and political importance attached to the Festival by the participants and by the thousands of spectators
Tradition, truth & tomorrow by Galarrwuy Yunupingu( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I will continue my work on my land, building a future. It is the only thing that is certain to me now and I want to advance while I can. I am trying to light the fire in our young men and women. We are setting fires to our own lives as we really should, and the flame will burn and intensify - an immense smoke, cloud-like and black, will arise, which will send off a signal and remind people that we, the Gumatj people, are the people of the fire. There are people of the fire around Alice Springs - and I reach out to them, too. We can then burn united, together. Tradition, Truth & Tomorrow is?no mere essay. It is an existential prayer,? writes Noel Pearson. Galarrwuy Yunupingu tells of his clan and his early life. He recounts his dealings with prime ministers, and how he learnt that nothing is ever what it seems. And behind him, he writes,?the Yolngu world is always under threat, being swallowed up by whitefellas. This is a weight that is bearing down on me; at night it is like a splinter in my mind.?
