AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Paddy Wainburranga of the Rembarrnga tribe from Arnhem Land relates and paints the Rembarrnga history of Captain Cook. Typical of contemporary Aboriginal accounts, this story offers a markedly different perspective to the history upheld by non-Aboriginal Australians. The 'Captain Cook' of the title, in Northern Australian slang, refers to white people.
