Summary
Paper by Robert Stuurman, who includes two of his artworks to explain his thoughts about the importance of Aboriginal social and cultural identity, the differences in the Western ideas of identity, and the effect this has on Aboriginal Australians. "Ancient pathways is a painting representing identity. That a person's identity is more than who the individual is, that a connection linked to the past runs parallel and in its own way shapes the future in how evident or not it seems to be. To walk on the ancient pathway starts by the individual coming to terms with themselves. An unpacking and a letting go of cultural baggage to find the inner self is also the beginning of being in touch with yourself. Motivations and what drives you is realised as you begin your spiritual journey of self discovery" [taken from Robert Stuurman's abstract on the Queensland University of Technology website where the document is found http://eprints.qut.edu.au/2081/]
