  • The establishment of an Aboriginal outstation, or small autonomous community, is described. Some of the beneficial psychosocial changes observed during an eighteen‐month period are described, and some possible reasons for them outlined. The outstation movement is presented as a viable, Aboriginal‐initiated solution to some of the dilemmas facing present‐day Australian Aborigines.
