Abstract

Dr Louis Peachey has lost track of the number of committees, forums and consulting groups where he has acted as a link between the medical establishment and indigenous Australia.  In both worlds, he casts a big shadow.

In this year of special milestones, however, he’s giving a speech to colleagues that touches first on the blindness of race laws and turns pretty quickly to the not-strictly-medical hysteria over AFL legend Adam Goodes’ famous “war dance”.
