Abstract

How should non-Indigenous Australians reconcile with Indigenous people? The Aboriginal Reconciliation Council urges newcomers to view the land through the eyes of the Indigenous owners. Keith Windschuttle insists that the narrative of frontier violence has been greatly exaggerated. Mainstream country musicians reconcile their place in Australia by a kind of belonging-in-parallel justified by hard rural work while Indigenous musicians more commonly celebrate what can be celebrated, and set aside the rest. Do we need a knowledge of inter-racial history for genuine reconciliation?
