AUSTRALIAN BIOGRAPHY TED EGAN DVD

$33.00

An author and songwriter, Ted Egan’s songs reflect his love of the distinctive Northern Territory humour and characters. His career includes working with remote Aboriginal communities, writing history, entertaining in pubs and holding the Northern Territory’s top job of Administrator.

At the time Ted Egan began his life in the Northern Territory, Indigenous Australians in the Territory were subject to Federal Government control through the Native Affairs Branch. One aspect of the policy of the day was to assimilate ‘mixed-blood’ Aborigines into the white European community. Often this meant removing children from their Indigenous mothers and from their Indigenous communities.

In this interview, Ted reflects on his life in remote communities, the inequalities between black and white Australians and the dilemma of holding power over the communities in which he worked. He particularly discusses his changing attitude to Land Rights.
