The palimpsest best describes what is at work in the ... texts under scrutiny. They are indeed palimpsests in that, behind the scriphml authority of the European language, the earlier, imperfectly erased remnants of the Afiican language can still be perceived (199 1: 2-3). Harold Scheub, in relation to his analysis of Afiican storytelling, shifts the focus of the palimpsest metaphor from the broader social, political and historical also to the textual, and then to the individual and interactive, asserting that the 'sumptuous palirnpsestic tracery of emotions' in both storyteller and audience provides part of the context (with the 'network' in which the story operates) whereby stories gain their meanings (1998: 22).

This was still offered in the late 1990s as a justification for the removal of children of mixed descent since colonisation began (Herron 1996: 3631;Blainey 1997: 22-23), an assertion refuted by the 'National Inqujl into the Separation of Aboriginal and Toms Strait Islander Children from Their Families,' Bringing Them Home (Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission 1997: 10-15). Historically, writing was invented to keep records more permanently and more accessibly than in oral forms. NonIndigenous institutions have asserted the primacy of the written over the oral, where the former is assumed to be objective, factual and verifiable, while the latter is subjective, unreliable and transient.
