AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Blue Water Empire is a dramatised documentary series giving a unique insight into the history and culture of the Torres Strait Islands. The series starts pre-colonisation and charts the all-pervasive impact of European arrival; from the missionaries to the influx of people from all around the world during the pearling boom. We see the devastating impact of World War II and the mass migration of Islanders to mainland Australia. The more recent history has seen an explosion of social activism, fighting for recognition, self-government and sea rights.'
