Summary
Argues that Western definitions of what constitutes a record have prevented archivists from recognising Indigenous Australian recordkeeping; the case for orally transmitted and cognitively held records is argued using three examples: the Tanderrum ceremony; the mnemonic device called a message stick and Dreaming narratives; concludes that acknowledgemen of Indigenous recordkeeping is essential if there is to be an inclusive Australian archival science
