Moreton-Robinson, Aileen, McMillan, Mark, & Singh, David (2015) Editorial of "International Journal of Critical Indigenous Studies, Volume 8, Number 2, 2015". International Journal of Critical Indigenous Studies, 8(2), p. 1.
The articles in this edition address two critical concerns that can be broadly characterised as Indigeneity as a spectacle and the elision of Indigenous sovereignty by multiculturalism and diversity. The first article, by Maryrose Casey, examines nineteenth and early twentieth century Indigenous performances that drew on cultural practices for entertainment. She highlights how these commercially driven performances were, in fact, demonstrations of sovereignty that white colonisers paid to observe. A measure of the success of these demonstrations can be found in the reactions of audiences, which often involved disrupting the spectacle by physically occupying the performance space.
