'Will the real Aborigine please stand up' : strategies for breaking the stereotypes and changing the conversation /

by Gorringe, Scott | Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait slander Studies | Ross, Joe | Fforde, Cressida.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island Studies 2011Description: PDF.Other title: Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: January 2011 Bibliography : p. 16-18Summary: This paper provides a background to issues discussed at a workshop held by AIATSIS in December 2009, and offers some of the outcomes in order to provide a basis for further debate and dialogue and to inform future forums. The workshop focused on a matter of growing concern to many Aboriginal people - the prevalence of an erosive mindset of deficit which pervades many Aboriginal communities and its attachment to notions of identity, which includes perceptions of authenticity widely adopted from similar views held about Aboriginal people by non-Indigenous Australians. The workshop discussed issues such as: the identification of perceptions of identity within and outside Aboriginal Australia; how perceptions of authenticity arise and why they persist; the social impact of such perceptions; and the impact of legislation and policy that links entitlement to identity. Disengaging the language of disadvantage (or pathologising discourses) was identified at the workshop as fundamental to effecting change. As methods of producing change, participants identified the need for creating safe spaces for discussion, challenging mindsets, habits and conversations and co-creating transformative pathways.Availability: (1)

[245]-264) and indexSummary: Aboriginal Family and the State examines the contemporary relations and history of Indigenous families in Australia, specifically referencing issues of government control and recent official recognition of Aboriginal 'traditional owners'. Drawing on detailed empirical research, it develops a discussion of the anthropological issues of kinship and relatedness within colonial and 'postcolonial' contexts.

With a rich discussion of the production, practice and inscription of social relations, this volume examines everyday expressions of 'family', and events such as meetings and funerals, demonstrating that kinship is formed and reformed through a complicated social practice of competing demands on identity.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
