Lors de mon dernier tour, Marlo Morgan et ses livres ont été discutés, et ceux qui avaient commencé leur voyage en Australie, ont compris ,après un jour dans le Centre Rouge,que ce n'était que de la fiction, chose qu'elle a admise, mais peut le savent.
Citation:
Son premier livre, "Message des hommes vrais au monde mutant", fut publié en 1990 comme un témoignage authentique d’une expérience qu’elle aurait vécue avec des Aborigènes d'Australie. Le livre fut un succès dans tous les pays, sauf l’Australie. Après en avoir vendu 250 000 exemplaires, elle vendit les droits à Harper Collins pour la somme de 1.7 million de dollars en 1994.

Elle commença alors à donner des conférences sur le sort des aborigènes. United Artists acheta les droits pour en faire un film. A cette annonce, huit aborigènes « anciens » se rendirent aux États-Unis en 1996 pour empêcher la réalisation du film accusant son auteur de mentir sur son contenu et de tenir des propos racistes. Ils réussirent à empêcher la réalisation du film.

Marlo Morgan aurait présenté ensuite des excuses aux aborigènes. Elle aurait également admis que son livre était une fiction lors d’une confrontation avec "les anciens". Les éditions ultérieures du livre mentionnèrent alors son statut de roman.

Après la controverse

Marlo Morgan écrivit d’autres ouvrages par la suite, comme "Message en provenance de l’éternité" en 1998. Dans ce second livre, elle déclare que « cette fois, des amis aborigènes m'ont donné leur bénédiction et leur approbation pour ce travail ». Les aborigènes ont été tout autant révoltés par son second livre que par le premier. Malgré les rebondissements, l'attitude actuelle de Marlo Morgan, ses conférences et les préfaces de ses livres laissent toujours planer le doute quant à l'authenticité de son récit.


Je ne l'ai pas lue, il parait que ses livres sont bien écrits, et si c'est vrai, c'est dommage pour elle qu'elle n'ait pas mis "fiction" dès le début.

Inconsistencies, Falsehoods and Inclusion of Native American Indian Culture
These are many inconsistencies and falsehoods regarding Aboriginal culture and practices in Mutant Message Down Under. Prime examples are practices employed by the Real People that are totally alien to desert Aborigines. These include:

1. Walking on, instead of around, spinifex clumps. Spinifex does not grow as a plain of grass as implied by Marlo Morgan. It grows in clumps with sand collecting around the roots and it is very easy to steer a path through the clumps.

2. No desert Aborigine adds precious water to cook food. This method of cooking is unheard of in the desert regions. The carcass is cooked, with skin on, in the ground.

3. Desert Aborigines do not collect dung for fuel. It would take forever to collect enough of the small scats of kangaroos and dingoes to cook anything and would be pointless given the availability of dry wood.

4. Also, body-painting designs of flowers and animals, the Elder wearing a stunning full headdress of bright parrot feathers, putting a rock in the mouth to generate water, the sacred site containing statues of wood and stone, smoking from a ceremonial pipe and so on and so on ...

Marlo Morgan confuses her portrayal of Aboriginal culture with many North American Indian concepts. The names she attributes to tribe members, Secret Keeper, Sewing Master, Great Stone Hunter, Game Woman, Kindred to Large Animals, Spirit Woman amongst others, are more in line with Native Indian prophet names. This naming system is irrelevant in non-hierarchical Aboriginal tribes where each person has the same diverse range of skills and functions.

Chapter 18 is entitled “Dream Catcher”, which is an object of indigenous Native American culture. The German edition of Mutant Message Down Under is entitled Traumfanger, which translated back into English means Dream Catcher.

Her descriptions of ceremonial pipe smoking and full parrot feather headdress have no role in Aboriginal culture and are more typical of North American indigenous culture.

A full review of the inconsistencies and falsehoods ane chronicled in an anthropological review. See Stanton Report I follows an extended synopsis of Mutant Message Down Under that includes more of Marlo Morgan’s claims regarding the Real People tribe. The author of the anthropological review is a Western Australian anthropologist who has had extensive contact and experience with Aborigines of the Western Desert area.

This section will continue to discuss the most serious transgressions against Aboriginal culture.

3.1.2 Disregard for Aboriginal Protocol of Clearance
Marlo Morgan states that the “Real People” tribe once lived and survived on the coastline of Australia. And had actually been forced out into the desert by the intrusion of the British. She describes this process in passive terms.

Aboriginal people in the southern regions of Australia did not proceed to take over other lands outside their boundaries even though organised massacres, poisoning of waterholes and other atrocities were committed against them, threatening their very survival.

The overriding Aboriginal law across this country traditionally was that no boundary was entered until the proper procedure of clearance had been granted. The recognition and respect of the boundaries were paramount in maintaining order within each respective tribal group.

3.1.3 Reporting of Men’s and Women’s Business
Aboriginal people were outraged that Marlo Morgan does not distinguish between men’s and women’s business. Aboriginal law holds severe punishments for women who witness men’s business and vice versa. Traditionally, this is punishable by death.

In Mutant Message Down Under, men’s and women’s businesses are treated as one and the same. For example, male tribe members explain birthing procedures to Marlo Morgan. Birthing is a very sensitive women’s issue and is not discussed by men. It is an issue which Aboriginal women do not dissect or discuss in the public arena. Marlo Morgan describes this and other sensitive women’s business blatantly without any respect or regard for Aboriginal women. Aboriginal women at all the meetings have found this extremely upsetting. The women’s business arrangements and procedures Marlo Morgan outlines are completely untrue. Even if it was a true account, by writing about it, Marlo Morgan would have violated the right of privilege laid down in Aboriginal Protocol.

Aboriginal men were just as outraged at Marlo Morgan’s claims to have witnessed aspects of sacred ceremony and totems. Three comments from regional meetings reflect the depth of anger:


In our traditional law the author should consult Aboriginal people of the book. No woman is allowed to see men’s sacred ceremony and totem. I believe she should die exploiting our culture.

Ben Pascoe, Maningrida Community
Northern Territory

Any person who believes this book does not have any idea about Aboriginal law. 1) No women are involved in men’s business. 2) She would be killed if found anywhere near to man sites. That is law.

Ross Cole
Waramunga

It is a shame this woman can come all the way over here and say she’s done all these things when I know I as an Aboriginal person can’t even do these things myself.
