Abstract This paper critically examines the way that whiteness impedes a non-colonial present between many white  Australians with Indigenous Australians. It draws upon an empirical study with self-identified rural white Australians to explore multiple locations of whiteness and the complicity in the ongoing dispossession of Indigenous peoples and their land rights and sovereignty. Additionally the paper explores the counter-narratives developed by a number of participants who articulate a
relationship with Indigenous sovereignty. These narratives counter the centrality of whiteness and openup the possibility of future relations that are non-colonial.
