Under the Act: researching Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
Presenter: Kathy Frankland
The 'Under the Act' presentation provides an overview of the administrative control of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Queensland.
The presentation looks at the various pieces of State legislation which led to the large scale removal of Aboriginal people from their traditional countries and more specifically the removal of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children to missions, reserves and mainstream institutions.
The presentation will also cover how to undertake Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander family history in Queensland.
