for any funding. ‘Spirituality,’ here, is also used as a land claim. Like AFN colonies crown land grants, religion is used as a qualifier as ‘culture’ is; Aboriginals didn’t pray to ‘the great spirit’ before eating thankfully until Christianity was introduced. ‘The mother earth’ was insignificant until land and water claims became a reality – competition.
Reqirements for qualification become obvious as anthropology marches forward. Aboriginals were founders and not recent immigrants – the obvious becomes itself again.
