(p.215) Afterword
Wild Articulations

Timothy Neale

University of Hawai'i Press

The afterword reflects on the events that followed the end of the controversy in 2012-2013, considering how these events retrospectively inform the issues addressed in this book. These events include, for example, the election of Tony Abbott as, in his own words, a ‘Prime Minister for Indigenous Affairs’ and the downturn in the mining sector in Australia. As this afterword shows, several of the major non-Indigenous figures that had campaigned against the Wild Rivers Act soon abandoned their promises to Indigenous people. Relations between Indigenous representatives, the state, and the private sector are characterised, this afterword suggests, by an instrumentality that undermines any potential for significant change.
