Managing resistance: Whiteness and the storytellers of indigenous protest in Australia

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

Since the first stirrings of a white sense of Australia as home, the issues of Indigenous rights and presence in Australia have played a pivotal role in the framing of identity and nation. In this context, Indigenous public political agitation and action, whether symbolic acts, massed action or long-term campaigns, have consistently confronted and contested white social and moral narratives of race and nation.
