The getting of the Nganabbarru : observations and reflections on Aboriginal buffalo hunting in northern Australia

Auteurs :
BOWMAN, D.M.J.S.
ROBINSON, C.J.

Description :
The experience of buffalo hunting trips with Aboriginal men in central Arnhem Land is used as a point of departure to consider the relationships between Aboriginal people and megaherbivores, and to explore the complexity of feral animal management in cross-cultural settings. The enquiry raises the question of the cultural conception of feral animals. The failure to continue control programs and inadequate consultation with Aboriginal landowners meant that today's land managers are once again faced with conflicting views about controlling feral buffalo populations on Aboriginal land and within National Parks like Kakadu.
