'Is this Australia?'

Hundreds in hiding after fleeing Aurukun riots.

Travis Ngakyunkwokka is living in fear.

The 19-year-old and about 300 others have fled the remote community of Aurukun on Cape York in far north Queensland, following an alleged fatal stabbing on New Year’s Day that reignited clan rivalries and threw the town into turmoil.
As an Aboriginal elder once patiently explained to me: the notion that the indigenous Australians are one people (a nation) is a white man's delusion. Yet government policies are still framed resting on the fallacy that they are.
