The Australian public is yet to be offered a rationale for the family feud that erupted into a brawl involving 120 Indigenous Noongar people in the West Australian wheatbelt town of Narrogin last November. This project involved the creation of a series of feature articles that seek to explain its origins and manifestation. This paper presents those articles, along with an exegesis addressing the significance of the assignment, and the details, limitations and ethical implications of the methodology used. It also includes a discussion that begins the process of locating the articles within the discourse of recent political/ideological discussions about Australian Indigenous affairs.
