Does the aboriginal have a future?

That was the disturbing (1977) question that Shazza came across (while apparently creeping the houses of shut ins and hoarders), in O’connor (?)

Absolutely! Contends #NF#1 from this equally disturbing tableau in Greenmount. Which should be in 1967, but is alas today.

    Still got the royalty on the cover … that’s gotta be King Billy Cokebottle. All those poignant questions answered, then ignored. All that effort wasted by Ita Butterbox.

    It is with a great sense of shame that I admit to having done very little of benefit to the victims of white settlement.
    We constantly declaim the plight of the displaced persons of the rest of the world, whilst doing our utmost to creat difficulties for those who mistakenly come to this country under the false belief that we, as a nation, would offer them refuge from the horrors that they experienced in their own homes.
    Worse, even, we treat our own, Aboriginal, displaced people with contempt and paternalism.
    At least we could give them a reasonable rental return on the lands of theirs on which we have built our cities, created our farms and extracted huge volumes of their earth.
    But no, not us, the acme of civilised development – my arse.

    Wither go the Aborigine ? Just follow the scats says She-Ra and blame the Slavo Army.
    For Andrew Blot Aborigninality is your Mothers , Fathers , Aunties, Uncles and your culture. Remember when the Romans stuck up Hadrian’s wall and started Scotland.

      Even the Welsh are still fighting the eternal war against cultural annihilation and invasion by financial and political forces of superior strength.
      A forlorn last ditch attempt to preserve a sense of dignity in their highly evolved cultural, domestic and social structures.

    Wow! I suppose we have come a long way since those days. At least far enough not to openly ask such a stupid question, but not far enough that people will still have those ridiculous, offensive and utterly tasteless artifacts in their front yards. Does any one know the history of the “concrete aboriginal”? Like, who thought of them and why? What was the fashion and thinking behind them? Is it simply because Fred Bullpit had one or did he have one because it was the trend of the day?
