AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The interviewing of Aboriginal people about their family history, that is, about

their relatives, on radio proved to be an innovation that provides

a “snapshot” of a person’s history and identity. Interviews such as these can become more precious over time. This is the case with Aunty June Barker’s interview on BlakChat a program on Koori Radio and the Gadigal Information Service in Sydney, that is reproduced below. The exact reproduction of

this interview in text provides an opportunity to explore Aboriginal English expression and sentiment, proof of cultural continuity amongst the Aboriginal people of southeast Australia,as well as hearing a unique and important story of one family’s history.' (Source: abstract)
