AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Consisting entirely of extracts from the Minutes of Evidence of the [1881 Government] Inquiry [into Coranderrk], Coranderrk : We Will Show the Country unites the power of oral history and the authority of the written-word to forge a personal connection with the voices of the past; allowing key figures such as William Barak and several of the men and women of Coranderrk - as well as their allies and opponents in the white community - to speak directly to a contemporary audience.' (Media release, 2011 season)
