First Australians Episode 4: No Other Law

First Australians Episode 4: No Other Law

This episode of First Australians gives an excellent academic account of the first 50 years of contact between the Arrernte people of central Australia and the European missionaries, pastoralists and police. What makes it so amazing is that the narrative is seen by both the lens of the Arrernte people and that of the European settlers. Issues covered include: laws and Dreaming stories of the Arrernte people and the importance of this to the lives of the people, early relations between Arrernte and European peoples, the impact of pastoralism, frontier conflict and atrocities, and the clash of Arrernte beliefs and Christian missionaries. An excellent case-study in contact history.
