From the vantage point of the remote Northern Territory town of Tennant Creek, Aboriginal Business offers new writing and perspectives on the emergence of Aboriginal organisations, and the unfolding of these within town, regional and national contexts.
Aboriginal Business is an ethnographic snapshot of the Warumungu people, the traditional owners of the country around Tennant Creek.
The author examines both the colonial past and the contemporary practices of alliance-making that set the stage for an alternative future, re-routing the national and global narratives that still seek to confine Indigenous people to the margins.
Aboriginal Business offers some new writing and perspectives on the emergence of Aboriginal organisations and the unfolding of this within national, regional and town contexts. — Francesca Merlan, Professor of Anthropology, Australian National University
