abstract
"‘Against native title’ is about a divisive native title claim in the outback town of Ceduna, where the claims process has thoroughly reorganised local Aboriginal identities over the course of the past decade. The central character in this story is senior Aboriginal woman Sue Haseldine, a self-styled charismatic rebel and master storyteller. Sue and her extended family have experienced native title as an unwelcome imposition: something that has emanated from the state and out of which they gained only enemies."--
