ABSTRACT
The article discusses Aboriginal Australians and race relations in Australian historiography. It focuses on the 1930s to 1950s, a period coinciding with what was termed "The Great Australian Silence" on Aboriginal issues. The author explores the ideas of anthropologist W.E.H. Stanner and the book "Why Weren't We Told," by Henry Reynolds. Ideas about Aboriginal Australians in the Australian media, the arts, fiction, and children's books are examined. The Australian magazine "Walkabout" is also considered.
