  • Issue 40 - Ross v Chambers: Assimilation law and policy in the Northern
           Territory
    • Abstract: Booth, Katharine; Ford, Lisa
      On 9 September 1955, Jack Chambers, co-owner of Eva Downs Station in the Northern Territory, had an argument with his Aboriginal cook, Dolly Ross. That morning, Ross had refused to prepare breakfast for her fellow Aboriginal pastoral workers because she said she was ill. Chambers claimed that Dolly was malingering because she had quarrelled with her husband. After the argument, Dolly, her husband Jim and a minor named Munro left the station. Chambers claimed that he had ordered them off the property. The Ross family testified that they had left in protest when Chambers threatened to 'liven up' Dolly if she did not do her work. Later that morning, Jack Chambers, Colin Chambers, manager Jack Britt, and stockmen George Booth and Francis Booth rode out from the station either to muster cattle or to pursue the Ross family. Either motive was possible: there were cattle to be mustered and all hands were needed on deck.

  • Issue 40 - Staged savagery: Archibald Meston and his Indigenous exhibits
    • Abstract: McKay, Judith; Memmott, Paul
      Archibald Meston is remembered as the major architect of Queensland's 1897 legislation that was to regulate its Indigenous people for almost a century, and also as its Southern Protector of Aborigines from 1898 to 1904. Meston's contribution as a policymaker and Protector has received much scholarly attention, however, his activities as a showman - that is, in exhibiting live Indigenous people and himself joining in the performances - are not so well known and have been documented only sporadically. Even his best known offering, the Wild Australia Show, which was the subject of an exhibition held by the University of Queensland's Anthropology Museum in 2015, has not been fully explored. This article takes a closer look at Meston's exhibiting activities, which can now be traced more easily with the help of online searching of newspapers. It shows that these activities were central to his policies for solving Queensland's 'Aboriginals problem' and to his work as a Protector, and eventually gained him a national reputation (or notoriety) as a showman. Further, Meston's forays into the sphere of popular entertainment highlight a paradox in the treatment of Indigenous people in Queensland in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, whereby these people were publicly paraded as 'noble savages' while behind the scenes they were being dispossessed, institutionalised, or at worst, exterminated. Meston's activities also highlight the narrow line of demarcation that existed at the time between ethnology and entertainment, enabling him to claim scientific credibility for his observations of Aboriginal life that were mostly more sensationalist than accurate.

  • Issue 40 - The Aboriginal people in Sydney as seen by Captain Abel du
           Petit-Thouars, 24 November to 9 December 1838
    • Abstract: Dyer, Colin
      Abel du Petit-Thouars was 45 years of age when he arrived in Sydney in November 1838. He had joined the French Navy at the age of 11, and served in the Mediterranean during the Napoleonic wars. He later spent four years at the French Naval Station in the Pacific, looking after the interests of French commerce along the war-torn Pacific coast of South America. He was thus a well‑experienced seaman when he was appointed to lead an expedition around the world to support French trade generally and, more specifically, to assist the ailing French whaling industry in the Pacific. With a view to impress the people he would meet, he was given a large three-masted vessel, the frigate 'La Venus', and a complement of no less than 468 officers and men. His instructions were to travel around the world in a westerly direction.

    • Abstract: Liebelt, Belinda; Roberts, Amy; O'Loughlin, Clem; Milera, Doug
      Aboriginal peoples around Australia have played a significant role in the establishment and development of many of the country's successful agricultural industries. Despite this, Australian rural histories rarely acknowledge or celebrate Aboriginal people's labour as an important contributing factor in the prosperity of agricultural ventures. This lack of recognition is often symptomatic of more widespread absences that exist within Australian historical discourse regarding Aboriginal people's working lives since European colonisation. These absences are often at their most pronounced in rural areas, where there has been a strong desire to erase any contrary evidence that could undermine 'the pioneer success story' or challenge the idea of European settlers as anything other than guileless agents engaged in 'a struggle over adversity that became the foundation stone of nation building'. Increasingly, however, these mediated absences are being contested as a greater emphasis is placed on documenting and including Aboriginal people's historic and lived experiences within farming and pastoral industries around the country. One of the objectives of these studies has been to highlight how Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people's lives are often entangled, helping to negate narratives that presuppose Aboriginal people's exclusion and separation from greater Australian working life.4 Finding ways to accurately represent the specificities of these cross-cultural 'entanglements' in appropriate ways for both cultural groups has been an ongoing challenge.

  • Issue 40 - Ending isolation?: Leprosy, welfare and Indigenous
           Australians 1950-86
    • Abstract: Robson, Charmaine
      When Derby leprosarium in north-west Western Australia closed its doors in 1986, it finally ended the century-old Australian public health policy of detaining people with leprosy at special sites of isolation. As with its counterparts in the Northern Territory and northern Queensland - East Arm and Fantome Island, which closed in 1982 and 1973 respectively - the vast majority of patients were Indigenous Australians, mostly from remote parts of the continent. Under state and territory health legislation, these people could be compelled to enter the leprosarium and submit to treatment for as long as departmental authorities deemed. Members of other races were also susceptible to leprosy, but, from the late 1950s, most were treated for short periods in hospitals or at home, rather than in a leprosarium.

           fight for Aboriginal people's equality, 1948-62
    • Abstract: Lapham, Angela
      From earliest childhood until I left home at the age of seventeen I heard so frequently the story of my birth and the role played by the kindly aborigines that it requires no effort even now to recount word for word as told to me by my mother. It never failed to stir me emotionally and the telling does to this day. I often considered in those early days, if ever and how I might be able to repay in some measure the kindness of these gentle people. Eventually that opportunity did come to me, not in my home state but on the opposite side of the continent. When I was placed in charge of the Native Affairs department in Western Australia I perceived the opportunity to contribute something towards their welfare and took as much advantage of it as the limits of Government policy, politics, money and public attitudes would permit. I know I succeeded up to a point but wish I could have done more. I - we - owe it to them.

  • Issue 40 - The space of conflict: Aboriginal/European interactions and
           
    • Abstract: Burke, Heather; Roberts, Amy; Morrison, Mick; Sullivan, Vanessa
      Colonialism was a violent endeavour. Bound up with the construction of a market-driven, capitalist system via the tendrils of Empire, it was intimately associated with the processes of colonisation and the experiences of exploiting the land, labour and resources of the New World. All too often this led to conflict, particularly between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. Overt violence (the euphemistic 'skirmishes', 'affrays' and 'collisions' of the documentary record), clandestine violence (poisonings, forced removals, sexual exploitation and disease) and structural violence (the compartmentalisation of Aboriginal people through processes of race, governance and labour) became routinised aspects of colonialism, buttressed by structures of power, inequality, dispossession and racism. Conflict at the geographical margins of this system was made possible by the general anxieties of life at, or beyond, the boundaries of settlement, closely associated with the normalised violence attached to ideals of 'manliness' on the frontier.

  • Volume 39 Punishment as pacification: The role of indigenous executions on
           the South Australian frontier, 1836-1862
    • Abstract: Anderson, Steven
      When Major Thomas O'Halloran articulated the government's position to the Milmenrura in front of a makeshift gallows at the Coorong in August 1840, he may as well have repeated it at every one of South Australia's 23 Indigenous executions. The gibbetting of the bodies was unique on this occasion but the idea that Indigenous hangings were to serve both a punitive and an elevated didactic function in the colony was not. Unlike public executions for European offenders which always took place in or around the Adelaide Gaol, public Indigenous hangings occurred at the scene of the crime with settlers and fellow tribesmen encouraged, sometimes forced, to watch. Recognising that race was a determining factor in the treatment of a capital offender, this paper shows how pioneering South Australians placed great value on the violent theatre of the gallows, as it was thought to pacify a troublesome Indigenous population who did not share British culture or language. It was a belief that culminated in the successful passage of an 1861 amendment through the South Australian Parliament that made provisions for the reintroduction of public executions for Indigenous offenders. This was after public executions for all capital offenders, regardless of race, had been abolished three years prior in 1858.

  • Volume 39 Aboriginal service in the First World War: Identity, recognition
           and the problem of mateship
    • Abstract: Scarlett, Philippa
      The popular construction of unconditional mateship, said to make the Australian Imperial Force (AIF) the band of brothers it never was, today overshadows the existence of racism in the AIF, and the fact that the negative treatment Aboriginal servicemen received post-war was often at the hands of those now said to have been their mates. This mateship myth also obscures the failure of white Australia to recognise the service of Aboriginal men. Before examining these intersecting phenomena, I first consider the diversity of the men who comprised the Aboriginal soldiers of the First World War to counter the oversimplification of this group. This masks individual stories and denies identities, including cultural identity, and in doing so reinforces generalisations about Aboriginal mateship. I then examine the contradictions in the observance of the 'Defence Act 1903' (amended 1909) and draw attention to the pragmatism and racism that underpinned the enlistment of Aboriginal men and their relationships within the AIF. Following this, an examination of the post-war treatment and recognition of Aboriginal servicemen exposes the transient reality of the wartime 'mateship' now prominent in discussion of Aboriginal war service.

  • Volume 39 'Let us go' ... it's a 'blackfellows' war': Aborigines and the
           Boer War
    • Abstract: Maynard, John
      There remains much mystery, misconception and myth surrounding the history of Aboriginal involvement with the South African Anglo-Boer War (hereafter Boer War). Unquestionably, Aboriginal men did go to South Africa and play a part, but the numbers, identity and background of these men remains sketchy. The war in South Africa remains itself somewhat the forgotten war. Jim Davidson has reflected that its memory 'slipped from public consciousness relatively quickly ... Collective Memory of the Boer War was soon swamped by the Great War'. In this study I reflect on some of the known and unknown stories and experiences of Aboriginal people during the Boer War. What were the living circumstances of Aboriginal people in Australia leading up to and during the Boer War and did this have any impact? Did Aboriginal people and communities support the war in South Africa? What do we know of the Aboriginal men that went to South Africa? Why were they there? How did they get there and did they get home? Whilst acknowledging the lack of archival sources, I will address or reveal some of the complexities of these issues through this article.

  • Volume 39 Introduction: Diversifying the black diggers' histories
    • Abstract: Riseman, Noah
      When I started researching Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander military service history in 2004, this was a very niche academic area. David Huggonson did some work in the 1980s and 1990s on the First World War, and Robert Hall's canonical texts 'The Black Diggers' (1989) and 'Fighters from the Fringe' (1995) had set a dominant narrative of the First and Second World War experiences: notwithstanding regulations explicitly prohibiting enlistment of persons 'not substantially of European origin or descent', Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people managed to circumvent the rules and served in both conflicts. For those men and women enlisted in regular units, it was largely an egalitarian experience - often for the first times in their lives - yet they returned home to continuing discrimination. Huggonson estimated about 400 Aboriginal men served in the First World War; Hall estimated approximately 3,000 Aboriginal people and 850 Torres Strait Islanders formally served in the Second World War, not to mention the hundreds more who served in informal, labouring capacities in remote northern Australia. Some local histories enhanced this dominant narrative of participation, including the works of scholars such as Heather Goodall, Kay Saunders and Elizabeth Osborne. Now the estimates have increased to at least 1,000 and 5,000 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander personnel in the First and Second World Wars respectively. These men and women came from diverse cultural, educational, linguistic, regional and employment backgrounds.

  • Volume 39 Hunger and the humanitarian frontier
    • Abstract: O'Brien, Anne
      Within a few days of settlers' arrival in Eora country in 1788, disruptions to the ecological balance between population and food supply were set in train. The first conflicts were over fish and the officers soon observed that the local people were 'very hungry'. Over the next century and a half as settlement spread across the continent, so too did these disruptions. Their rate and extent was not everywhere the same. Different economic modes and different demographics varied their impacts, and bush food continued to be important. Indeed, recent research shows that in some contexts settlers embraced and depended on Indigenous foodways. But while such insights are important in variegating the larger story, disruption to food supplies was one of colonialism's irrefutable consequences. This knowledge has informed the writing of Indigenous historiography since the 1970s. Henry Reynolds' influential 'The Other Side of the Frontier' (1981) saw the European invasion resulting in 'chronic insecurity' in relation to food, and much of his analysis of resistance proceeds from conflict over resources. A decade earlier, C. D. Rowley wrote that there was 'a kind of inevitability' in the progression from the 'destruction of native food supply, or of the incentives to hunt and gather it' to rationing.

  • Volume 39 Allawah Grove native settlement: Housing and assimilation
    • Abstract: Delmege, Sharon
      It is well known that the rationale for state intervention in the lives of Indigenous Australians performed a volte face when 'assimilation' was adopted in 1937. By the 1960s, 'integration' had emerged as a preferred guiding principle, but the goal remained the same: to incorporate Aborigines within the broader community as self-directed social and economic equals. However, a fundamental lack of respect for Aboriginal culture, combined with the idea that 'part‑Aborigines' had no cultural heritage, ensured that Aboriginal identity, agency and autonomy were largely ignored. Since then, we have witnessed shifts to 'self-determination', 'reconciliation' and to 'closing the [health and well-being] gap', but there is still a long way to go before any of these principles are fully achieved.

  • Volume 39 Harry Brown (c. 1819-1854): Contribution of an Aboriginal guide
           in Australian exploration
    • Abstract: Blyton, Greg
      In recent years there have been a number of important historical works which recognise the important contribution of Aboriginal guides in the exploration of Australia. This article contributes to this field by providing a narrative history of a young Aboriginal man from Newcastle called Harry Brown who accompanied the well-known Prussian explorer, Dr Ludwig Leichhardt, on two expeditions into the interior of Australia in the 1840s. Brown was a highly intelligent, resilient and skilful man who made an enormous contribution to Australian exploration, yet has been overlooked in Australian historiography. His contribution to Australian exploration is an exemplar of Aboriginal influence during the nineteenth century which extends well beyond simplistic portrayals of Aboriginal people as useful, submissive and subservient guides. It will be demonstrated in this article that without the courageous and resolute Brown along with his perspicacity and judgement, the widespread celebration of Leichhardt's discoveries may not have been forthcoming.

  • Volume 39 Unravelling the Yamaji imaginings of Alexander Morton and Daisy
           Bates
    • Abstract: Barrington, Robin
      In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Alexander Morton and Daisy Bates deployed the photograph as a privileged evidentiary anthropological document. Their photographic representations of Yamaji from Western Australia circulated within a transnational network of discourses and practices involving anthropologists, police, pastoralists and journalists, and served to cement views of Yamaji as racially homogeneous, primitive and uncivilised. This article explores the histories behind these photographs and their polysemy to challenge some of the scientific and popular 'truths' disseminated about their Yamaji subjects. It discusses how Yamaji as figures of Aboriginalist discourse were represented in the work of two influential public figures, Alexander Morton and Daisy Bates, and through their interactions within scientific and colonial networks of power.

  • Volume 39 Lives twisted out of shape! Tasmanian Aboriginal soldiers and
           the aftermath of the First World War
    • Abstract: Gerrard, Andrea; Harman, Kristyn
      In this article we consider how Tasmanian soldiers of Aboriginal descent experienced the aftermath of the First World War, drawing on and supplementing several case studies from a wider body of research Andrea Gerrard has undertaken into the recruitment and front line experiences of these men. Our particular focus here is to examine how the Repatriation (hereafter 'the Repat') Commission responded to these men post-war.1 War changed these men both physically and mentally; literally their lives were twisted out of shape in ways that would have been unimaginable when they initially volunteered. We are particularly interested in interrogating whether the Tasmanian servicemen of Aboriginal descent and their families received treatment equal to that being meted out to other Tasmanian returned servicemen. We unsettle notions that returned Aboriginal servicemen continued to suffer significant discrimination with regard to repatriation benefits in post-war Tasmania, while acknowledging that their particular circumstances may have made the requisite application process more difficult than it was for other Tasmanian returned servicemen. As the Repat records have only recently been made available to researchers, it remains to be seen whether such experiences were distinctly Tasmanian or were emulated across mainland Australia.

  • Volume 39 'Willing to fight to a man': The First World War and Aboriginal
           activism in the Western District of Victoria
    • Abstract: Horton, Jessica
      In April 1916, 'The Age' ran a short story headed 'Aborigines in camp: Others willing to fight', announcing the presence of two 'full-blooded [sic] natives' among the soldiers at the Ballarat training camp.1 The men's presence blatantly contradicted popular interpretations of the 'Defence Act 1909' (Cth). Only men of 'substantial European origin' were eligible to enlist in the First Australian Imperial Force (AIF), although, in May 1917, the regulations were modified allowing 'half-caste' Aboriginal men entry. The Aboriginal men volunteering to fight in April 1916 were James Arden and Richard King, Gunditjmara men from the Lake Condah Aboriginal Reserve in the Victorian Western District. In the Condah area there was already an acceptance of Aboriginal men's participation in sport and labour; during the First World War, this extended to military service. The men's 'splendid physique' may have justified their acceptance into the military. James Arden was a 'well known rough rider' and Richard King had 'claimed distinction as a footballer and all-round athlete'. The journalist portrayed the spectacle of the Aboriginal men at the Ballarat training camp to promote white men's enlistment. Articles announcing Indigenous enlistments were published across south-eastern Australia during the 1916 and 1917 recruitment drives.

  • Volume 39 The families were ... too poor to send them parcels': The
           provision of comforts to Aboriginal soldiers in the AIF in the Second
           World War
    • Abstract: Harman, Kristyn
      In mid-1941, Private Clarrie Combo from New South Wales sent a letter from Syria, where he was stationed, to Mrs Brown of Loxton in South Australia. Combo, an Aboriginal soldier serving abroad with the Second Australian Imperial Force (AIF), wrote 'it is very nice of you to write to someone you do not know. Thank you for offering to knit a pair of socks for me. I wear size seven in boots'.1 These unlikely correspondents formed an affective relationship during the Second World War under the auspices of a scheme designed specifically to cater for the needs of Australian Aboriginal men serving abroad. Following the outbreak of the war, in August 1940 the Victorian-based Aborigines Uplift Society launched a national comfort auxiliary. This was Australia's first fund with the express intent of providing comforts for Aboriginal soldiers, and its founding, modus operandi and outcomes are the subject of this article.
