Abstract

Indigenous time began with the Era of Creation. White time began with the invention of the calendar, sundial and clock. White time was, and still is, influenced by the calendar, clock or watch. Time to go to sleep, time to get up, time to go to work...go home, time for dinner and time to watch the cricket. Even time put aside for sex! Traditional time was not set by calendar, sundial, clock or watch, but by events such as seasonal movements and other traditional practices, the resources, the environment and by us. White time has resulted in the decline of resources, family instability, the deterioration of the very air we breathe. Whose time is better...your time or my time?
