|Title:||Resistance: A process of survival for Balardong people|
Indigenous Heath Studies
|Abstract:||In writing this historical research, it is written from the perspective of a Balardong person. This in itself demonstrates that Balardong culture has been preserved. The historical chapters provide an insight into Balardong lived experience, changes to lifestyle and adaptations made. Whilst Balardong people have made many adaptations and changes to lifestyles, their culture and identity has been maintained. More importantly there is no 'right' or 'wrong' way in interpreting what is meant by culture and identity. As this is ultimately the responsibility of Balardong individuals. Balardong people are diverse in their views and behaviours. But nonetheless they are still Balardong. History shows that Balardong people have within the holistic cultural framework adapted to changes over the past two centuries. However, they have not lost sight of their cultural heritage. Whilst colonisation processes eroded some of the aspects of culture the remaining fragments have been reserved for future generations. At the same time cultural history despite losses have been remembered. This process is part of the sustaining and maintaining of Balardong culture and its heritage.|
