    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


    Stephen and Joy Harris arrived at Milingimbi in 1975. This paper provides some of the political, cultural, intellectual and theological background to community life at Milingimbi in the 1970s. Bilingual education, which led eventually to bothways education was in its infancy. It was also a time of the Uniting Church’s strong commitment to social justice theology and cultural openness, and the Woodward Commission’s enquiries into Aboriginal land tenure, which soon led to the Aboriginal Land Rights Act. The work of Stephen and Joy Harris can be understood as informed by those contexts, as well as informing the development of a deeply cultural approach to cross-cultural education.
