Do you know of any non-Indigenous bureaucrats in either Federal or State departments of Indigenous Affairs who are fluent in an Indigenous language?

We need the help from non-Indigenous Australia too. There is very much a campaign that we… all of our non-Indigenous and Indigenous and…other types of multicultural Australia can help us with also. So, if you can do that locally, I think that’s gonna go a long way.

Realising the potential of desert environments – ABC
Listen Now //- 24122008// |Download Audio //- 24122008//
Nearly three quarters of Australia is desert, you know. Consequently, most of our population centres have built up around the edges of the continent.
Recent discussion around deserts here have focused on the viability of remote Indigenous communities, with remote Australia being described by some as a ‘failed state’ … referring to the difficulty maintaining infrastructure like health and housing. But it’s a bitter contradiction — Australia’s deserts and the people living there contribute over ninety billion dollars to Australia’s gross revenue. That’s according to the Desert Knowledge Cooperative Research Centre.
In early November this year, over 300 people got together in Alice Springs to discuss the potential of desert environments. A sixth of the world’s population live in desert regions … and the conference examined the potential of these environments to generate energy, food, knowledge and industry. Sharing and developing knowledge of desert environments seems particularly relevant given climate change.

Australian cuisine – Meat pie, pavlova, lamingtons – is there such a thing as a national Australian dish? Today Australian cuisine is a mix of cooking styles from all over the world. You particularly see that in the variety of restaurants. But how about our home cooking? What defines Australian cuisine and the Australian eating culture?

A Merciless Place – When Britain was defeated in the American War of Independence, it had nowhere to send its criminals. Australia wasn’t an option at the time but the British did have many slave-trading ports in West Africa. These convicts could fill the ranks of British soldiers who guarded the forts and their human cargo, kept there before they were shipped to North America, South America and the West Indies. What happened to many of these convicts during Britain’s disastrous West African scheme that led to the colonisation of Australia, is told in a new book by Dr. Emma Christopher
