Blood, sweat and welfare : a history of white bosses and Aboriginal pastoral workers. /

by Jebb, Mary Anne.

Publisher: Crawley, W.A. University of Western Australia Press 2002Description: xiii, 364 p. : ill.Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index.Summary: This book examines the lives of Aboriginal pastoral workers in the Kimberley region of north-western Australia within the wider historical economic and political context. Jebb s account is based on information from twelve key storytellers from north of the Derby River, complemented by written records from government departments. Jebb contests the view that Aboriginal people were displaced from the stations by the long overdue awarding of equal wages in 1968, arguing that the previous rationing system already failed to meet the Aboriginal people s needs, causing them to seek support and amenities elsewhere. This is a significant piece of Australia s history, enlivened by the memories of those who lived it.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Risks from Climate Change to Indigenous Communities in the Tropical North of Australia /

by Green, Donna (ed.) | Australia. Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency | Jackson, Sue (ed.) | Morrison, Joe (ed.).

Publisher: Barton, A.C.T. Australia. Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 178-184 A scoping study for the Commonwealth Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency, the Western Australian Department of the Environment and Conservation and the Northern Territory Department of Natural ResourcesSummary: This scoping study presents an assessment of the potential impacts of climate change on Indigenous settlements and communities across tropical northern Australia, including the Torres Strait Islands and the Pilbara region of Western Australia. The study region is home to about 87,000 Indigenous people, around a quarter of the total population of 355,000. The region includes 665 settlements varying from less than 50, to 3,500 people. Approximately 50 per cent of this Indigenous population lives within 20 kilometres of the coast or on offshore islands. Indigenous people in northern Australia face many existing challenges. These include: remoteness, poor health, inadequate infrastructure, lack of educational and employment opportunities, and low incomes. Climate change will exacerbate many of these pre-existing challenges. However, new opportunities also exist for some of these communities from climate change. Many of these opportunities will stem from existing roles that community members play inmanaging natural and cultural resources in remote areas on behalf of the nation.Availability: (1)
