Description - White Christ Black Cross by Noel Loos
Noel Loos frames the churches' missionary outreach to Aboriginal people within the reality of frontier violence, government control, segregation and neglect.
Aboriginal people on the missions responded to white Christianity as part of their enforced cultural change and within the missons' changing circumstances. As missionary control diminished, Aboriginal people responded more overtly and autonomously: some regarding Christianity as irrelevant, others adopting it in culturally satisfying ways.
