Why has Indonesia moved “centre-stage” in Australian popular culture? Indonesia is more open and accessible to the Australian mass media Better communications technology and cheaper, more reliable travel Dramatic events in Indonesia involving Australians

Rescuing Wawa Six year-old Wawa as he appeared on Channel 9’s 60 Minutes and Channel 7’s Today Tonight May, 2006

“ Tribal expert” Paul Raffaele with “current affairs” host Naomi Robson

Little Wawa about to be eaten… … by Australian television

How 60 Minutes introduced the Wawa story… Liz Hayes : This really is an adventure into the unknown. We're going back to the Stone Age on the trail of a long lost tribe, the last of the cannibals. And the amazing thing is this isn't ancient history. The tribe really does exist and not all that far from us — our next-door neighbours, really. Nevertheless, it'll take a major expedition to find them. They're called the Korowai and they live just as they did 10,000 years ago, deep in the jungles of West Papua. Our reporter Ben Fordham set out in search of the Korowai — these primitive warriors who have never seen a white man still believe in witchcraft and still eat human flesh.

How 60 Minutes reported the Wawa story from the field… Reporter Ben Fordham : West Papua — just a few hundred kilometres north of Australia. But it could be a different planet. Snow-capped mountain ranges rich in gold and copper and, for its Indonesian rulers, the greatest prize of all — timber. Down there is the largest expanse of rainforest outside the Amazon and that's where we're going. We've arrived at the edge of Korowai territory, the start of a 10-day round trip into the jungle. We've hired 15 Korowai porters to help carry our equipment. […] And so begins a gruelling trek into the thickest, wettest, muddiest jungle on the planet.

Luke Slattery in The Australian Emphasis should be on European languages that have an “affinity with English”. The push for a mass Asian language program comes from an “Australia-is-an-Asian-nation cabal”. A mass Asian language program would be “lunacy”. The Australian , 17 June 2009, p.33 German, French, Spanish and Italian are “relatively easy to learn.”

The pop misconceptions that are Slattery’s beginning points Australia is a “Western” nation Australians can rely on global English Asian languages are uniquely “difficult”

Australia is a “Western” nation

Australians can rely on global English

Asian languages are uniquely “difficult”

Our real enemies Behind the façade of immediate problems we face as Indonesian teachers, our deeper, more intractable challenges are… … the juggernaut of global English, and … the power and inertia of Australian popular culture
