Summary This paper seeks to explore the risks of providing preserviceteachers with professional experiences in remote communities.In particular this paper focuses on the risks associated with this kindof professional experience. Twelve pre-service teachers wereinterviewed whilst on a three-week practicum around Katherine andin Maningrida in the Northern Territory during 2012. The dangersoutlined in this paper relate to the way their experiences continued tobe mediated by stereotypes and perpetuating colonial practices. Thepre-service teachers’ limited understandings of Indigenousknowledges and languages are discussed before exploring the vexedissue of reverse culture shock that some of the participants identifiedwhen they returned home. The paper concludes by exploring thenotion of ‘allies’ as a way to negotiate the problematic nature of thiswork.
