Abstract

It is clearly important to applaud Yothu Yindi' s success but it is just as important to retain a critical focus and to recognise that the singling out of Yothu Yindi as (in manager Alan James' words) 'the flagship for Aboriginal Australia' (SMH 26/10/92 p5), conveniently serves to elide all that's troubling to white culture.
