Event Details

Hear how lost Queensland stories are being uncovered.

Indigenous Australians who served in the First World War are among the unsung heroes of Queensland's, and indeed Australia's, war effort. The Defence Act 1903 (Cth) initially excluded Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from enlisting in the war. Despite this, many Indigenous volunteers enlisted under assumed ethnicity/cultural backgrounds; some even changed their names, place of birth and other personal details to enlist.

As part of the Q ANZAC 100: Memories for a New Generation program, State Library of Queensland is continuing to discover and confirm Queensland Indigenous soldiers of the First World War. 

This forum will showcase research in Australia’s and particularly Queensland’s Indigenous service personnel. The event will also connect descendants and extended families of Indigenous servicemen of the First World War with further information about their ancestors and the context of their service. 

Date: Friday 22 June

Time: 10am - 12pm

Where: Auditorium 2, level 2, State Library of Queensland
