|Title:||Pickerdar: The Black One||Contributor(s):||Lore, T (author); McPherson, Kaye Louise (author)||Publication Date:||2005||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/1820||Abstract:||When the views of the world's oldest and longest isolated civilization are considered against modern orthodox perceptions, obvious cultural differences appear. For the Lia Pootah Tasmanian Aboriginal, Pickerdar is a great bird born from death. For the other, non-Aboriginal view, the black swan was a bird of great economic potential. Both cultures acknowledged the Pickerdar, the black swan, as a source of food. In this modern world of multiculturalism surely both the Lia Pootah and the western orthodox view have equal value. These two views, held by indigenous and non-indigenous, are very different perspectives and it is these perspectives of Pickerdar the swan which are offered for consideration.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Australian Folklore, v.20, p. 107-120||Publisher:||Australian Folklore Association||Place of Publication:||University of New England, Australia||ISSN:||0819-0852||Field of Research (FOR):||160403 Social and Cultural Geography||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://www.une.edu.au/folklorejournal/||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 37
