Abstract: Despite a lengthy and successful history of Indigenous multilingual/multiliteracy education and English as an Additional Language or Dialect programmes in Australia's Northern Territory, these programmes have virtually disappeared. The current denuded offerings in school instruction are a consequence of locally nuanced manifestations of neoliberal global developments. This paper uses Roberts and Mahtani's (2010) market orientation to race to examine the localised expression of global neoliberal influences in Northern Territory remote Indigenous contexts.
