This collection celebrates the contribution to public intellectual life - in South Australia and beyond - of eleven respected Indigenous educators, community leaders and activists: the Duguid lecturers. Their work, in turn, honours the dedication of Dr Charles and Phyllis Duguid in advancing the cultural, social and political interests of Indigenous Australians from the 1930s to the 1990s. The Duguid Memorial Lectures, 1994--2014, offer telling insights into the endeavours of individuals, communities and movements dedicated to improving Indigenous education, health, cultural practice and community governance. They prepare the ground and point the way for generations of leaders to come. The Duguids and the Duguid lecturers are partners in the long, continuing campaign for a reconciled Australia.
