Free Sample Essays on Australian History - The Uni Tutor
As a university student in the early 1980s and as a political journalist for most of the 1990s and well beyond, the issues surrounding Britain’s continental occupation, of terra nullius and native title, were certainly in my consciousness. Dispossession, to my mind—thanks to what I’d learned in HSC Australian History—certainly happened when the white men came and forced the Aborigines off their land. The Aborigines’ dismal plight was compounded, of course, by European disease and grog. I had some minor consciousness of widespread violence against Tasmania’s Aborigines and I was compelled and moved by the shameful stories of the forced removal of Aboriginal children. But thanks—either to the shortcomings of my formal education or to a profound absence of curiosity on my part—organised colonial violence against Indigenous Australians was largely confined to the island state.
