Example text

Missions and early government institutions provided incentives, in the form of food supplies, blankets, and other European goods, for Aboriginal families to leave their children in school. '2 The reason for failure was attributed to the stubbornness and inferiority of the Aboriginal peoples, who did not seem to appreciate the advantages being offered them. This perception contributed to the decision to establish more thorough and formal control over the lives of Aboriginals through the establishment of the Aborigines Protection Board.

The authority of the protector extended to all Aboriginal people whether or not they lived on a reserve. For those who did live on a reserve the protector had the additional powers of both lawmaker and magistrate. Managing Aboriginal Reserves Each state set aside some Crown lands for Aboriginal use. These were not treaty reserves in the Canadian tradition; they were state ordered land-use designations. As such, they could be revoked or changed without consultation with Aboriginal peoples. Such reserves provided a place to which Aboriginals could be sent as well as a place for their reformatories and schools.

Australia provided a few examples of such policies. Some early governors of Australia, notably Governor MacQuarrie (1810-21), extended the protection of British law to Aboriginals, particularly in matters of violence. 4 These early attempts to protect and 'civilize' the Aboriginals were not successful. Aboriginal peoples held to their own beliefs and lifestyles and only stayed in the vicinity of Paramatta and similar institutions to receive rations, blankets, or other benefits. In the dry interior areas of Australia, although Aboriginal peoples were dispossessed of their land by the development of extensive pastoral cattle ranches, they also frequently remained in the same vicinity and became pastoral station workers.
