ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to trace the formation process of “parallelprovenance” concept in the context of Australia’s aboriginal communityarchives development and draw its implications for contemporary rebuildingof domestic “past affairs-related committee archives”. Focused on historicaldevelopment of aboriginal community archives in Australia, this writingdivides its development into three periods: colonial archives, post-colonialarchives, and contemporary archives and investigates each period’s distinctfeatures in managing and building of aboriginal community archives. Firstof all, for colonial archives, it pays attention to Australia’s archival tradition,which focused on current record-keeping and then development ofmultiple provenance resulted from this tradition. Second, for post-colonialarchives, it examines the appearance of aboriginal people as the subject ofdocumentation category and name indexing on them. Finally, forcontemporary archives, it analyzes current activities of Australia’s academicworld of archival science for overcoming “the otherness” of aboriginalpeople through conceptualization of “parallel provenance”. Conclusively,through current meaning of parallel provenance, this study drawsimplications for democratic contemporary rebuilding of domestic pastaffairs-related committee archives, in which historical victims become the subject of archives.
