Description / Abstract: "This study examines engagement with the state from a remote, Aboriginal perspective. It aims to foster a better understanding of how we work with, not what we do to Aboriginal people. Set in the context of everyday outstation lives in the Central Australian desert, the study privileges the voices of Western Arrernte men and women as they encounter three of the reforms introduced under the Howard Government’s contentious 2007 Northern Territory Emergency Response (NTER) and its continuation over the next two years under the incoming Rudd Labor Government. The findings from the study suggest the engagement of people like those from the Western Arrernte outstations is a matter of choice - not coercion." - Abstract
