A Modern Mutiny – 11 November 2020 – 11/11/2020 – Wednesday – SBS

With their own language, a blend of old seafaring English and Tahitian, and their own system of government, many don’t see themselves as Australian – that it says so on their passport is merely ‘a technicality’. But recent hard times have forced the island to reach out to Australia for help, and with mainland help comes mainland rules.
