Love Punks: online game created by Australian Indigenous kids

"The Love Punks online game was created by a gang of 9,10 and 11 year old Love Punks from Roebourne in WA. For the last 8 months the Love Punks have been sweating it out, in 40 degree heat, on computers creating stop motion animations of themselves and friends in photoshop and flash."

In Spring One Plants Alone: intimate portrait of a mother and her son

"This is the story of Puhi, an aged Maori woman and Niki, her fully grown but wholly dependent son. The world they occupy is not a world of large events but the rituals of everyday life, traditions and interdependence. 'In Spring One Plants Alone' documents the minutiae of their very enclosed existence. Filmed over a period of one and a half years, it emerges as a rare, haunting and powerful portrayal of their life together. This is the story of their rituals and of their survival. The small and disconnected instances that we encounter form a lone vision of the rifts and the bond between an old woman and her disturbed son."

Uncontacted tribe found deep in Amazon rainforest

"Brazilian authorities say they have pinpointed the location of a community of ancient and uncontacted tribespeople in one of the remotest corners of the Amazon rainforest.

Fabricio Amorim, a regional co–ordinator for Brazil's indigenous foundation, Funai, said the indigenous community had been found after three small forest clearings were detected on satellite images. Flyovers were carried out in April, confirming the community's existence.

Four straw–roofed huts, flanked by banana trees and encircled by thick jungle, can be seen in photographs taken during the flyover.

The community is likely to be home to about 200 people, probably from the Pano linguistic group which straddles the border between Brazil, Peru and Bolivia, according to Funai.

Amorim said the region – known as the Vale do Javari – contained 'the greatest concentration of isolated groups in the Amazon and the world' but warned of growing threats to their survival."

Quasi-Market Irrationality In Welfare Servicing: The Case Of Remote Indigenous Housing

The widespread acceptance of a problem in remote [Australian] indigenous living conditions is manifest in significant humanitarian concern and a social obligation to provide public help. The actual problem which is the focus of the help–based intervention programs can be traced from the historical problematization of Indigenous living conditions, rather than any processes of Indigenous problem prioritization. This discussion examines how the social construction of the concept need has pervaded the problematization of Indigenous living conditions. It considers how this conceptualization of 'need' has entrenched imposed perceptions of problematic Indigenous difference. The discussion examines how alternate conceptualizations of the concept 'need' might provide insight into the 'wicked' policy problem that is Indigenous living conditions. Clarity about need highlights for policy–makers the difference between people's problems and problematized people. The discussion considers how inappropriate conclusions about Indigenous obligations might be avoided after considering the policy which is provided as a result of perceived social obligations.
