A provocative analysis of Aboriginal engagement in white politics during the past 20 years. It all began in 1972 with the establishment of a number of tents on the lawns of Parliament House in Canberra. In effect, it was an Aboriginal Tent Embassy and so began the metaphor for this black-white political engagement. The program analyses the original political claims which sparked off the early determination to face the government head-on. It also considers the outcome of those claims. That, in turn, has affected contemporary Aboriginal politics which when compared with the early 1970s has taken on a far more passive and personal stance.
