Exemplum : Living on Aboriginal Reserves in the Past

Dear readers! How's everything? We are happy to see you again. Continuing our program to present more about the example of genre, in this occasion, we presents the example of Exemplum text.

Perhaps, some of you are not familiar with this kind of genre. Here is the example of Exemplum genre. It is from radio transcript discussing about living on aboriginal reserves in the past.

Living on Aboriginal Reserves in the Past

It happened quite a lot - any time that white people would come to the place, the word would get straight around  "Lookout, here's the welfare or Look out, here's the police; and immediately we'd head bush. 

They were always treated with suspicion because of the days not too long before, when I was a kid, when they'd just come there and take the kids away. 

Mom used to tell me what used to happen, you know and whose kids were taken and where they went to.

It was a fear that was maintained and it's a fear maintained for most aboriginal people today. The suspicion of white people and their authority. The reason is due to white people just come into the mission and just stood over people, took kids away and laid their own law down.
