In their subscription to the myths of alienation from self and landscape and the spiritual emptiness
which all non-indigenous Australians allegedly suffer,and/or to the notion of a derivative culture
lacking local reflection and relevance, many authors, artists and assorted commentators are
reconstructing Aboriginal heritage in such a way that it is made to offer solutions to these supposed
national afflictions,' Beyond these parochial concerns, however, much of the interest in the nonmaterial
cultural property of Aborigines is precipitated by a professed disenchantment with certain
conspicuous features of Western culture and the so-called civilised life.
