Patrons and riders : conflicting roles & hidden objectives in an Aboriginal development programme at Kununurra

Willis, Peter Anthony


This study is concerned with the development and subsequent failure of the Mirima Council Garden Project. The enterprise involved three participant groups in Kununurra in the early 1970's: Aborigines, recently settled in the town who had previously lived on outlying cattle stations, myself as Parish Priest, entrepreneur and community educator (together at various times with other interested whites), and the Federal Office (later Department) of Aboriginal Affairs.
