The answer from two academics to the question posed by the Strehlow Conference 2014, Where to from here? is not what most people would be happy to hear.
These comments by non-indigenous academics really do need to be taken seriously in looking at the big picture of the relationship between white and black in this country. The continuing active and passive resistance to white hegemony is ignored in public policy debate. Governments wielding big sticks, of whatever form, are just not going to establish strategies that deliver better outcomes for indigenous Australians.
