Aboriginal Elders’ Voices: - Stories of the “Tide of History” is a collection of Victorian Elders life stories and oral histories.
The Elders share their stories in an attempt to ensure both sides of Australia’s history are finally heard. These stores tell of cultural resistance on missions of defying assimilation laws, of forever moving around to save children from the welfare.
Also included in the book is a brief history and analysis of the legislation, policies, attitudes and strategies that have affected the lives of the authors and their families since colonization. This aspect provides an historical perspective encouraging a deeper understanding of the elders’ stories.
Reconciliation can only eventuate with an understanding gained from hearing and including the voices of indigenous Australians. The time has come to listen.
