AbstractHistoryArchive Description

This documentary looks at the subject of Aboriginal resistance to the white invasion, focusing on such people as Pemulwuy, Yagan, Bennelong, the Eora people, and the Kalkadoon people. The theme of resistance is important because most Australians do not think that there was organised Aboriginal resistance to colonisation. The program also includes interviews with descendants who reminisce on the continuity of the Aboriginal warrior tradition.
