Letter: Aboriginal land claims


by Rev. M. J. Crowe

News Weekly, July 1, 2000

Sir,

Congratulations on your Canberra Observed (News Weekly, June 17, 2000). My observation of Aboriginal people as a priest of the Archdiocese of Canberra and Goulburn for 59 years, is that they care little for what happened to their ancestors but they, like their fellow white Australians, are concerned about their day-to-day problems of living.

Their ancestors had their land taken from them, but so did many of their fellow white Australians who were dispossessed of their land in many countries overseas. We don’t hear the Irish, the English or the Italians in Australia moaning of how their ancestors were robbed of land in centuries gone by. That's history.

We're all Aussies. We like it that way.

Rev. M. J. Crowe,
Garran, ACT
