Summary
"... portrays the richness and diversity of Victorian Aboriginal culture through artworks and stories from the early 19th century to the present day. Over 340 artworks and artefacts are featured, from shields, baskets and possum skin cloaks to contemporary artworks dealing with the Stolen Generations, land rights and reconciliation. Old and new are woven together, demonstrating the continuation of culture, and words and phrases from Victorian Aboriginal languages are used throughout. Artists describe their own artworks, and stories and quotes from Elders and other community members provide cultural and historical context, telling of the importance of Country, of life before Europeans arrived, of invasion and dramatic change, a dislocation missions, and of the survival and strength of the living culture."
