    Abstract

    In a report written by the Aboriginal Consultative Group in 1987, there was a claim made that the Aboriginal Administration Act of 1936 was "harsher and more discriminatory than its predecessor, the Act of 1905" [The Educational Voice in Education, 1978:8}. Furthermore, the report claims that the laws and policies of the twentieth century were harsher than the laws and policies of the
    nineteenth century. This research examines the political activity in the area of Aboriginal Administration in Western Australia beginning in the nineteenth century and ending with the 1936 Aboriginal Administration Act. Primary and secondary sources were used to determine if the claims found in the Educational Voice in Education" were correct in their assertions.
