I wrote the text for this paper in response to my experiences on residency in Western Australia talking to various stakeholders in cultural heritage: uni archaeologists (UWA), a mining-company archaeologist (Rio Tinto), consultant archaeologists, and Indigenous rangers.   It explores the complicated politics around research and collaboration with Indigenous communities and possible productive approaches to dealing with them.

I designed it specifically in the spirit of the 2015 National Experimental Art Forum ‘uncomference’ as an ‘unpaper’ I could hand out like a religious tract.
