tribal vs. urban aborigines
In this movie, a lot is made of the distinction between tribal and urban aborigines, with several characters stating(incorrectly, as far as the story went) that the two categories are mutually exclusive.
Does this mean that, as far as conventional wisdom in Australia is concerned, urban aborigines never identify, even informally, with a tribe? And that they would retain almost no adherence to any tribal customs? Numerous times in the film, it was implied that it would be utterly foolish to think that city-dwelling aborigines would be engaged in any sort of tribal practices.
