Surviving New England
Surviving New England – a History of Aboriginal resistance & resilience through the first 40 years of the colonial apocalypse. Newly published based on new research by Armidale Aboriginal linguist and historian, Callum Clayton-Dixon.
"Clouded by the great conspiracy of silence, the dominant myth of peaceful settlement, and the proliferation of Eurocentric narratives touting the achievements of explorers and pastoral pioneers, our people's remarkable history of resistance and survival during the first few decades of occupation has faded into obscurity. It is this history which Surviving New England sets out to reclaim, co-opting the colonial archive and subverting the colonial narrative, deconstructing their story in order to uncover our own."
