'Our struggle to reconcile with (people of Australian Indigenous descent) is our struggle to reconcile within ourselves, to recover what we are inexorably losing -

a mystical stance before an environing world. It is the struggle for the human soul, not just in Australia, but also throughout the world in the twenty-first century.


We refuse to engage them, and to learn from them, at our own peril.'

                            James Cornell, 2004:140
