Event description

Description

Hear the story of Maggie and Ernest Mobourne, Indigenous activists remembered for their sustained resistance against the Board for the Protection of Aborigines at Lake Condah at the turn of the 20th century.

The Mobournes were skilled negotiators who used writing as a means for political resistance, but were ultimately banished from their home at Lake Condah.

See the letters and records that tell their story.
