Impossible to go to the national museums conference, held in Alice Springs last week, without thinking about the agenda set by the NT Government for a national Aboriginal art gallery here. KIERAN FINNANE reports on the elephant in the room, and on what First Nations people, here and elsewhere, want when it comes to telling their stories.

Different words, different ideas: family talk in Arrernte

If you've ever wondered about the extraordinary web of relationships among Aboriginal people of your acquaintance, about what is meant by terms such as cousin-brother, cousin-sister, or how your friend can call more than one person mother, then this is a book for you. KIERAN FINNANE takes a look at Anpernirrentye Kin and Skin – Talking about family in Arrernte by Veronica Perrurle Dobson AM and John Henderson, the latest production of local publishing house IAD Press.
