Application to Destroy

In uncharacteristically forthright language, a German mining corporation has applied to the Australian Department of Indigenous Affairs for approval to destroy aboriginal sacred sites and archeological artifacts of the Nyoongar people. Petroglyphs, ancient shelters and ceremonial grounds, pure streams, and dreaming sites are some of the cultural items slated for destruction by the cement manufacturer.

To counter the Nyoongar elders' claims, the corporation has hired an overtly racist anthropologist to dispute the legitimacy of Nyoongar knowledge, identity and culture.
