From the 1960s to the 1970s, the aboriginal people batted for equal treatment. After being placed in government reserves where the conditions were poor, protests from various aboriginal tribes were launched against the government. The Yolngu tribe in the Northern Territory filed a petition against the British government condemning the bauxite mining activity in their lands.

Life in Desperance is completely segregated, including the drinking, a favorite sport for both sides but a special affliction for Aborigines, who for decades have experienced high rates of alcoholism and alcohol-related violence. Wright describes the pub: ''A little window lot separated the Barramundi bar from the ugly, stained mustard-colored walls of the snake pit next door, which was crowded to overflowing with the 'darkies.''' Violence is everywhere, between the Aborigines and the whites, and among the Aborigines. There are storms and cyclones, and the ancient spirit world is not exactly peaceful either.

The battle plan of the settlers was clear at the onset. Initially, they tricked the natives by promising protection and making the Aborigines civilized people.
