For centuries, the spiritual life of the Australian Aborigines was concealed behind a veil of misunderstanding and prejudice. In this work, Cowan recounts some of the major myths and analyzes them in detail. The myth material stands alone, independent of Aboriginal culture, and through it we are offered an insight into the Paleolithic tradition.

ATSIC has compiled 'As a Matter of Fact' in order to help achieve a more enlightened public debate, and to counter the 'myths' and misconceptions that too frequently substitute for knowledge in the area of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander affairs. It brings together facts and figures, and interpretations from an indigenous perspective, that have never been published in one place. Contents: 1. HISTORY - Aboriginal history is not Australian history - There's no point in dwelling on the past - what's done is done 2. FUNDING - There's too much money thrown at Indigenous affairs! - Indigenous people get special treatment from governments - Nothing has got better. Why throw away good money after bad? - The money hasn't got through to the people who need it. 3. ATSIC - It's ATSIC's job to fix up all the problems of Indigenous people - ATSIC is not accountable - ATSIC is not representative of Indigenous people 4. SPECIFIC PROGRAMS - Indigenous people shouldn't be able to get special home loans - There's no need for Indigenous people to have their own medical services - Special Indigenous education programs are unfair to other Australians - Indigenous people shouldn't have their own legal services - and get it easy in the criminal justice system 5. LAND - Aboriginal people have no more connection to the land than I do - Sacred sites are made up - Aboriginal people have got too much land already - There is no point in buying land for Aboriginal people - The Mabo judgement is a threat to other landowners - The Native Title Act gives too much to Indigenous people and is unworkable - The Wik judgement means farmers can't farm - Native title stops development and locks up land 6. SOCIAL ATTITUDES - Many of them are no darker than me - the only real Aborigines live in the outback - Aboriginal people don't want to work - Indigenous people are more likely to commit crime - Most Aboriginal people have problems with alcohol.
