    Abstract

    Looma us one of a number of Aboriginal settlements established in line with the Federal policy of Aboriginal Affairs introduced by the Labour Government in 1972. It is a community of 330 people, situated on the Fitzroy River 12 kilometres south east of Derby. Apart from six whites, temporarily resident in caravans, the community members are largely full-blooded Aborigines linked by kin ties, and their recent displacement from the Kimberley cattle industry.

    The focus of the primarily descriptive study has been on an examination of the aims of the Federal policy makers and the aims of the residents with reference to community development - how these aims interact and on the part played by administrative bureaucrats in this interaction.
