‘Rolling Thunder’: Changing communication and the Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjara public sphere
Tom O'Regan and Philip Batty in Australian Television Culture, identify a problematic confrontation between westernised concepts of 'publicness' and the notions of that 'publicness' found within Aboriginal cultural practices. O'Regan and Batty acknowledge the role that tradition plays in mediating the integration of indigenous communities within contemporary Australia. They suggest an array of issues that very among communities. Some variables include proximity to European settlement, the traditional food sources, and the distance from the ocean.
