Summary In the 200 or so years since European settlementof Australia, the way of life of Australia's traditional owners has changed forever. Four aspects of Aboriginal life have been most affected: family life, land rights, self-government and access to sacred sites and freedom of cultural expression. This book covers the story of Aboriginal self-government, then and now. Learn about the struggle of Aboriginal people for the right to self-determination and about the role of bodies such as the former ATSIC and its successor, the Federal Government's new advisory body
