This paper is about an argument to open a discussion. It positions me in the context of contemporary Australian ‘Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people’s attachments to land in all their complexity’ (Head, 2000, Nash, 2002). A possible meeting place (Carter, 2013) with ‘[u]nsettling effects and partial understandings . . . more in the spirit of postcolonialism than security and old certainties’ (Nash, 2002).
