Oh, the irony of it: A welcome to country ceremony before the First Test against South Africa.
Welcome to country ceremonies are a recent phenomenon for highly regarded Aboriginal MP Bess Price:
The member for Stuart said welcome to country ceremonies were not particularly meaningful to traditional people anyway.
“We don’t do that in communities. It’s just a recent thing,” Ms Price said.
“It’s just people who are trying to grapple at something that they believe should be traditional.”
