I would like to ask why Wenten Rubuntja, my friend and neighbor, went to live in Larapinta Valley camp when it was built? His family stayed on.

Delayed report castigates government over town camps
What follows is my opinion and not the one of the Shaw family (I do not like the word clan).
If only poor welfare recipients and non workers are in those dwellings we will create ghettos.
Is it not possible that some in camps pay more rent than some others.
Why should someone leave his or her longtime home because he/she succeeds?
Longtime ago I occupied an housing trust dwelling. I was not asked to leave when I found myself a well paid job, but I was given the opportunity to buy the place.

The same way that Aborigines used to survived in Australia before the white settlers came.


The stolen child who went to university

If policemen, holy men of the cloth, miners, pastoralist, vagabonds of the day, had kept their trousers buttoned up and not pursued Aboriginal women, there would not be a stolen generation, that is, children sired by non Aboriginal men as those described.”
Your comment underlines the fact that those children were part of two communities: Aboriginal and European.
I am in total agreement with you, it was a disgrace that those children were stolen from their mother; but in this period of history women of any skin colour did not have many rights.
