How can notions of home, community, and Country be represented within histories of both endurance and dislocation? At this event, Brenda L. Croft will present a Gurindji-specific historiography that engages with the pastoral impact on Gurindji Country from the late nineteenth century, the experience of Stolen Generations members and their descendants, and contemporary Gurindji experience into the 21st century.
These are themes represented at Still in my mind: Gurindji location, experience and visuality, a national touring exhibition Brenda has collaboratively curated with Gurindji family and community members, reflecting on events preceding and following the 1966 Walk-Off at Wave Hill Station that sparked the national land rights movement.
