    I have never heard anyone doubt Pascoe's aboriginality, until now. I think its because his stunning work Blood on the Wattle (I confess that I haven't read Dark Emu yet) shames Australia for its efforts to keep its history of genocide as unspeakable. It has been spoken and now they are baying for his blood.
    The claim is supposedly sourced from another Indigenous person.

    Some claim the palawa are not genuinely Indigenous.

    And, of course, the First Nations are not an indivisble bloc. Within that name are a multitude of peoples, with their loyalties and differences.

    At a micro-level, it comes down to lan and immediate family. Some of the financial scandals within Land Councils and other organisations can be attributed to this.

    Then, after we're done getting stuck into each other, there's the white folk, ready for a go.
    Note: TYPO: 2nd-last para should read "At a micro-level, it comes down to clan and immediate family."

    So eloquently put. A true hero and leader.

    The other side is the assimilationist bandwagon.

    Assimilate? Don't make me laugh.

    Having done an genome analysis of Peter Dutton's DNA, I can confirm he is 100% Solanum tuberosum !! :-)
    Just stick to the idea that science tests falsifiable hypotheses to destruction.
