ABORIGINAL & TORRES STRAIT ISLANDER LINKS

 As an Indigenous man of the Wiradjuri Tribe of New South Wales in Australia, I have had considerable exposure to multimedia including the internet and its so called trappings over the last 9 years. But what concerns me most as an Indigenous person is the amount of Indigenous content on the Web and the lack of authenticity of these pages.

History shows that over the last few centuries Indigenous cultures of the world have suffered injustices from ignorant, narrow minded society's and their lack of appreciation and understanding of anothers culture, society and spirituality.

But what really gets my back up is the total absorbtion of Indigenous cultures, after the dismantling by the invading culture through either genocide, government policy, stealing children and disempowerment through the lack of currency and information sharing, we now have the invading culture immersing themselves within the culture that they have suppressed.

You can look at all points of the globe and you will find indentical scenarios as to what has happened within Australia and it still continues to this present day through one form or another. Whether its taking onboard the "hip" aspects of playing didj or by breaching moral rights and the copyright act by making either T-towels, Carpets, T-shirts and selling of genuine(Taiwan) artifacts. Today this has progressed to the point of ignorant "Fish & Chip" shop owners entering into politics and making totally ignorant and unsubstantiated comments that the press thrive on, to non Indigenous Australians coding, creating and uploading web pages that portray to the world Indigenous information including photo's without the consent and consultation with relevant communities.

I feel it is totally inadequite and rude that Universities, Public Broadcasters and archival structures sell this material for say $100 a second or if not portray themselves on the Net via the Web with large corporate looking pages with no input or consent from communities regarding the Intelectual Property of either the content or images.

Listed below are a collection of Indigenous links from around the world, although not all of these pages are created by Indigenous people, decide for yourselves.
