Description

In Plain View - The Aboriginal People of Coastal Sydney

With Paul Irish and Michael Ingrey

Aboriginal people are prominent in accounts of early colonial Sydney, yet we seem to skip a century as they disappear from the historical record, re-emerging early in the twentieth century. What happened to Sydney’s Indigenous people between the devastating impact of white settlement and increased government intervention a century later?

Paul Irish and Michael Ingrey will discuss this poorly understood period of Sydney’s shared history when Aboriginal people were ignored in colonial narratives but in reality were living lives on their own terms.
