Summary
Police records a valuable archival source on Aboriginal peoples on the frontiers of European settlement, providing descriptions of people, places, camps and activities, contacts, police relationships with local Aboriginal people and with native trackers and native police etc; types of police records; argues Aboriginal voice 'silent' in records and that records silent on aspects of incidents being recorded as they tend to be self justifying; history of Kimberley frontier, in particular police history and function of police records; examples of 'silence' of records; concludes that records a valuable source of evidence for native title claims but must not be taken at face value and 'silences' must be investigated
