Summary
Discusses Indigenous Australian leadership from 1788-1830; examines four widely accepted Indigenous Australian leaders from frontier conflicts; puts forwards the view that Indigenous knowledge systems based on co-operation and consensus did not allow for the inclusion of single dominating leaders but the chaotic change since the British military invasion in 1788 has seen the development of individual Aboriginal leaders; questions the classification of leadership within conflicting knowledge systems; showcases that the amateur ethnographers of the First Fleet (and later administrators) did not understand Indigenous Australian society and subsequently in their ignorance transposed Native American Chiefdom concepts to Indigenous Australians in the issuing of gorgets or King plates; this practice bestowed illegimate leadership on some Indigenous Australian men and in time women also suffered the same indignity
