To me, Aboriginal history is more than stories to be debated. They are my life and that of my families.
Too often, history is depersonalised. It happened to someone else. It becomes a collective of people who are often nameless and faceless. I decided that I needed to share some of my stories and those of my family to make history real. With permission from my mum, here is a truncated version of our families story.
History isnt just stories in a book. It happened to us all.
