Coastal Sydney

With Ronald Briggs and Michael Ingrey

Michael Ingrey a founding member of the Library’s Indigenous Advisory group will join librarian and curator Ronald Briggs to discuss and display archival material documenting the long and unbroken presence of Aboriginal people living in coastal Sydney. The collections dispel the idea that the Aboriginal history of Sydney can be divided into two distinct phases, pre-colonial and post-colonial and prove that contrary to recent narratives, Aborigines stayed on through colonisation and forged relationships and economic connections with Europeans.
