This paper will present some findings from fieldwork and research conducted with some members of an Aboriginal Australian Youth Audience from Central Australia, in response to media representation of the Northern Territory Intervention in 2007. I will discuss mediated ‘images’ of law, traditional lore and the landscape or space within which this conversation or narrative has been presented, and present how members of a young Aboriginal audience perceive these images in relation to notions of identity, citizenry and Australian-ness.

Keywords: Aboriginal, Indigenous, Youth, Intervention, Law, Lore, Welfare, Media

I have been employed as a Research Assistant within the College of Communication Arts at the University of Western Sydney, since 2006. My current research studies have been inspired not only by this work but also by my teaching experience working with Indigenous kids in Alice Springs, Central Australia for several years prior to my employment with UWS. Before this I worked in the Community Sector and obtained my undergraduate degree in Arts (Theatre, Theory and Practise) at UWS, followed by my teaching qualifications at Charles Sturt University, Bathurst.
