Bringing together a well-respected team of commentators, many of them indigenous Australians themselves, this revised and updated edition examines the legal, social and political developments that have taken place in Australia since the publication of the last edition. Providing students with a greater understanding of the issues facing Indigenous Australians in the hope of contributing to reconciliation, the authors explore a broad range of developments, including: human rights and reconciliation in contemporary Australia; the demise of ATSIC; issues of indigenous governance and water rights. Giving readers an incisive account of the resounding impact of social, political and legal conditions upon the Indigenous people of Australia and their interaction with and recourse to the law, this book is an excellent resource for those interested in the law of a coloniser or conqueror and its lasting impact upon first nations.

Environment Institute of Australia and New Zealand Inc. In 2015, the Ngarrindjeri Nation in concert with the South Australian government won the Australian Riverprize for best practice in water management, after leading the development of a co-management approach to the Coorong, Lower Lakes and Murray Mouth (CLLMM) region during the Australian Millennium drought crisis. The purpose of this article is to explain why the prize-winning advances in water management in this region are an outcome of a strategic political process of Indigenous Nation (re)building, pursued by Ngarrindjeri leaders with the ongoing support of a formal research program focussed on Aboriginal governance. The primary insight revealed by the research is that Indigenous contributions to successful environmental management are not best conceived in terms of the protection of ‘cultural flows’–as is suggested by much of the literature in the field–but instead should be understood primarily in political terms. Like other Indigenous Nations, Ngarrindjeri consider they have an inherent and sovereign right to enjoy, use and protect the flow of water through their Country. Ngarrindjeri have effectively articulated their sovereign Aboriginal environmental rights and have successfully negotiated these rights with the South Australian state by producing targeted legal and political innovations that enable shared authority in the co-development of natural resource management policy. The article argues that Indigenous Nation (re)building and self-governance has positive implications for the development of best practice models of land and water management, both in Australia and internationally.

© 2019 Institute of Australian Geographers Indigenous nations have always and continue to assert their sovereignties to resist colonialism. This paper makes explicit the ways in which environmental management has been and continues to act as a tool of colonialism, particularly by privileging Western science, institutions, and administrative procedures. We argue that to decolonise environmental management, it is crucial to understand and challenge the power relations that underlie it—asking who makes decisions and on what worldview those decisions are based. Indigenous ways of being deeply challenge the foundations of environmental management and the colonising power structures that underlie it, and invite further thought about posthuman and relational ontologies. We provide a range of case studies that showcase the role of Indigenous nations in redefining and reimagining environmental management based on Indigenous sovereignties, knowledges, and ways of being. The case studies emphasise the crucial connection between Indigenous decision-making authority and self-governance for the enhanced protection and health of the environment. We argue that Indigenous agency, grounded in Indigenous governance and sovereignties, is driving innovation and decolonising environmental management by making space for new ways of thinking and being “in place”.

This paper identifies the emergence of the pursuit of social justice as a core focus of collaborative archaeologies in Aboriginal Australia. A wide range of case studies are examined, especially in relation to efforts to redress a ‘deep colonisation’ that silences Indigenous histories and fails to engage with Indigenous voices or experiences. This research is part of a wider global movement of community-based, activist and engaged archaeology that encompasses two principle approaches to social justice: the redistribution of resources and goods and the politics of recognition. It is informed by a more general concern with human rights, structural violence and ethical globalisation. In Australia, social justice archaeologies are both confronting, in terms of frontier violence, intentional structural violence and racism, but also inspirational/aspirational, in terms of Aboriginal nation building and the cultural facilitation of Aboriginal research ethics. The development of collaborative projects between Indigenous peoples and (Indigenous and non-Indigenous) archaeologists can be challenging. Indigenous archaeologists face particular challenges, including balancing sometimes conflicting expectations from communities with the demands of the profession. For non-Indigenous archaeologists, the challenge lies in the shift from working with Indigenous peoples to working for Indigenous peoples as part of a process in which social justice outcomes are a product, rather than a by-product, of archaeological research.

Indigenous involvement in Australian water management is conventionally driven by a top-down approach by nonIndigenous government agencies, that asks “how do we engage Indigenous people?” and has culminated in the ineffective “consult” and “service delivery” processes evident in mainstream water management planning. This is a hopeful paper that identifies the critical importance of a “nation-based” approach for effective Indigenous engagement in water planning and policy through the work undertaken by the Ngarrindjeri Regional Authority (NRA) in the Murray Futures program. The NRA is an Indigenous government in the “settled-south” of Australia. Over past decades, the NRA has developed a range of political technologies that act as tools for redeveloping Ngarrindjeri Nationhood after colonial disempowerment and dispossession. These tools enable better collaboration with nonIndigenous governments, especially in natural resource management policy and practice. In turn, this has better enabled the NRA to exercise a decision-making and planning authority over the lands and waters in its jurisdiction, therefore, more effectively exercising its ongoing duty of care as Country. This paper presents a case study of the Sugar Shack Complex Management Plan, codeveloped by the NRA and the South Australian Government in 2015, to demonstrate the benefits that accrue when Indigenous nations are resourced as authorities responsible for reframing water management and planning approaches to facilitate the equitable collaboration of Indigenous and nonIndigenous worldviews. As a marker of the success of this strategy, the Ngarrindjeri Yarluwar-Ruwe Program, in partnership with the South Australian government, recently won the Australian Riverprize 2015 for delivering excellence in Australian river management.

The objective of this article is to compare Indigenous and Western modernities by examining how contemporary Indigenous polities are finding inventive ways to assert their sovereignty. Our discussion presents an innovation in Indigenous governance introduced recently by the Ngarrindjeri people in Southern Australia. We explain the conditions in which Ngarrindjeri initiated their process of political reformation; we link our analysis to critiques of Western modernism and imperialism; and we then outline some key political technologies created by the Ngarrindjeri Nation to enable its successful influence in matters affecting their Country and community. We find that these resources remain firmly grounded in Ngarrindjeri ways of knowing, being and doing, yet they are expressed in a contemporary hybrid form that is accessible to non-Indigenous negotiation partners. As a consequence, they have established a modern Indigenous framework for intercultural negotiation of interests previously controlled by the South Australian state and other non-Indigenous organizations
This article is concerned with Ngarrindjeri nation building in the ‘contact zone’ with the Australian settler state by decentring the colonizer within a range of bureaucratic regimes. Ngarrindjeri engagement with natural resource and cultural heritage management will be used to illustrate the relationship between globalization, community governance, education, sustaining ‘culture’, Indigenous well-being, and reconciliation and its links to the Australian government Closing the Gap initiatives. This article connects Ngarrindjeri lived experience to the theorization of processes for self-recovery and social transformation that open possibilities for broad-based local and global coalitions, which include political solidarity in the interests of just Indigenous ‘reinhabitation’ and decolonization.

On 23 March 2007 at Goolwa near the mouth of the Murray River in South Australia, the Ngarrindjeri Nation launched the Ngarrindjeri Nation Yarluwar-Ruwe Plan: Caring for Ngarrindjeri Sea Country and Culture (the ‘NNYR Plan’). The NNYR Plan is the first Indigenous nation plan developed in South Australia and marks a major change in the way that the Ngarrindjeri leadership proposes to do business with non-Indigenous interests on Ngarrindjeri country. The NNYR Plan provides a strong statement of Ngarrindjeri rights, identity, authority and responsibility, but it is also a conciliatory document charting a vision for future, just collaborations between Ngarrindjeri and non-Indigenous institutions, governments, business and individuals.

The NGARRINDJERI Nation in southern South Australia is working toward a secure future for Ngarrindjeri Ruwe/Ruwar (lands, waters, and all living things). Ngarrindjeri Ruwe/Ruwar is the term for the fundamental interconnection between Country, body, and spirit. Ngarrindjeri believe that for the people to be healthy, the lands and waters need to be healthy.
At the start of the new millennium, South Australia was plunged into a serious drought that severely restricted the ¢ow of water through Ngarrindjeri Country, massively impacting the health of the lower River Murray, Lakes Alexandrina and Albert, and the Coorong. The entire River Murray estuary here is identified as a Ramsar Wetland of International Importance and part of the broader Murray-Darling Basin (see Phillips and Muller 2006). This region supports a fragile ecology where the “Meeting of the Waters” takes place, as fresh water combines with ocean saltwater in the tidal ¢ows of the river mouth (see Bell 1998; Hemming, Trevorrow, and Rigney 2002, 13 ). This area is a vital creation place for Ngarrindjeri and a habitat and breeding ground for many Ngarrindjeri ngartji (totems—friends).

Yannarumi is a Ngarrindjeri concept that can be translated as “speaking lawfully as country.” It is fundamentally connected to understandings of peaceful relations and wellbeing. This chapter is a case study of Indigenous Nationhood. It explains how Ngarrindjeri use the Yannarumi concept to understand and assess the changing conditions through which they strive to educate the postcolonial public, and thereby negotiate a healthy life-giving relationship with Australian governments and other non-Indigenous agencies. The discussion is focused on contemporary forms of Ngarrindjeri public pedagogy and engagements with the settler State’s education systems. In order to speak lawfully and authoritatively for the wellbeing of their citizens and Country, and to exercise the responsibilities that come with the culturally fundamental interconnection between people, lands, waters, and all living things, Ngarrindjeri leaders have developed forms of political literacy, education, and life-long learning that strengthen Ngarrindjeri capacity to create a healthy future as an Indigenous nation. This aspirational strategy is influenced and supported by experiences and knowledge from other Indigenous Nations in Australia, New Zealand, and North America. This chapter considers the potential of the Ngarrindjeri Yannarumi methodology to transform colonizing curriculum and assessment frameworks of school-based education that restrict Indigenous success by devaluing and negating Indigenous knowledges. It explains how Yannarumi principles can create new curriculum and assessment guidelines that align with Ngarrindjeri values and goals aimed at securing wellbeing for people, Country, and all living things.

The Ngarrindjeri Vision for Country contains long-standing principles of ‘wise use’ of their ‘Country’, supporting healthy rivers, lakes, estuaries and coastlines. Fundamental to this vision is an understanding that everything is connected and that both cultural and natural wellbeing require healthy lands, waters and all living things (Ngarrindjeri Nation 2007, p. 5). Ngarrindjeri use the term ‘Ruwe/Ruwar’ to describe this interconnectivity. Ngarrindjeri and Indigenous peoples internationally understand their humanity and their Indigenous sovereignty as being constituted in inextricable relations with the non-human world. For Ngarrindjeri, this philosophy is embodied in the concept and practice of Yannarumi, or ‘Speaking as Country’. This philosophy expresses the interconnectivity between the lands, waters and all living things. As part of the living body of their Country, Ngarrindjeri believe they have an abiding right and responsibility to sustain what Western science understands as ‘ecological health’.
In 1985 the Coorong and Lakes Alexandrina and Albert regions of Ngarrindjeri Country were declared wetlands of international significance under the Ramsar Convention (1971). This area includes the ‘Meeting of the Waters’, which has been recognised in State legislation as a location where the cultural and spiritual significance of the area is especially crucial for Ngarrindjeri wellbeing. Since this time, Ngarrindjeri have sought a meaningful contribution to the formal management of the Ramsar site. In 1998 Ngarrindjeri leaders established a formally constituted Ngarrindjeri Ramsar Working Party to develop a Nation-endorsed position paper for inclusion in a proposed Coorong, Lakes Alexandrina and Albert Ramsar Management Plan (DEH 2000; Hemming et al. 2002; NRWG 1998). However, the South Australian Government excluded this from the final Ramsar Management Plan, thereby blocking formal recognition of deep Ngarrindjeri connection to Country. In 2006 the then SA De...

More and more Indigenous higher education centres are being involved within the institutionalised teacher training processes of universities within education degrees. Indigenous centres and their Indigenous scholars are working collaboratively with education committees for reform in issues of pedagogy and curricula in Indigenous Australian Education. This paper will articulate the development of teaching training methodology for reconciliation that has been developed by the Flinders University Yunggorendi First Nations Centre. The centre teaches an Education topic titled Teaching Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Students. This topic is a 4th year core topic within Bachelor of Education degrees in Flinders University. The aim of this presentation is to outline reconciliation methodology that is grounded in critical pedagogy which seeks to raise students consciousness, facilitate making contact and taking action in relation to Indigenous history, social contexts and education.
