Event description

Description

Join historian, Dr Paul Irish as he discusses the process of piecing together the Aboriginal history of coastal Sydney, with help from the Indigenous community. What happened to the Aboriginal people of coastal Sydney between the arrival of Europeans and increased government intervention a century later? In this talk Dr Irish will discuss the findings of his new book, Hidden in Plain View, which demonstrates that Aboriginal people did not disappear; they may have been ignored in colonial narratives, but they maintained a strong bond with the coast and its resources and tried to live on their own terms.

This talk is hosted by Randwick City, Waverley and Woollahra Libraries.
