Exmouth - Cape Range National Park.

The information centre spaks of evidence of Aboriginal "middens" dating from 7000 years ago until about 1860s, whent he pastoralists came. We must take care if we happen upon one of these archeological sites.

It seems we must preserve the dead culture - now that it's dead.

The smallpox story is again cited.

The information centre and National park is run by non-aboriginal people. The information offered by the texts is scant and trivial, the perspective is unreflectingly westerna nd monocultural. It is like an old-fashioned early secondary school book on exotica.
