Summary
Explores implications of Charles Bean's statement "in no unreal sense it was on the 25th of April 1915 that the consciousness of Australian nationhood was born"; argues that commemorations of war and the Anzacs as celebrations of what it means to be Australian deny the experience of Indigenous Australians in their wars to defend their country from colonisation; posits that denials of frontier wars represent an effort to continue presenting country as normatively Western rather than acknowledging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander prior ownership; discusses memorials to Indigenous Australians who lost their lives in colonial land wars; deals with instances of vandalism of Indigenous memoirals including Kalkadoon and Yagan
