Indeed you have, but do you allow aboriginal Australians, in their own territories, to live under their own laws and customs or under European laws?

Yes.  It's called Arnhem Land.

Non Aboriginal people need special permission to enter the territory.

This is a protected reservation for those people who want nothing to do with any European influence over their culture.

 I've read about the Ngarra law that applies in Arnhem Land. I'm delighted that white Australia isn't interfering.

I did a day trip there.  We were on a boat trip with a tour guide.  He had very little English.  I have set foot on the sacred land, but only as much as they would allow.

Really interesting tour.

Well done. You should know about the culture and history of native Australians. It's something Australia should value.

It took our entire country being on fire in the summer of 2019/20 to brink back the ancient art of stick burning.

We've basically turned the process back over to the indigenous peoples.

They did it for tens of thousands of years.  Then Europeans arrived and said "No, we'll take it from here.."

Took over 200 years to accept that colossal mistake.
