Dark Emu versus the Colony
Have the systems of food production and land management been blatantly understated in modern retellings of early Aboriginal history? Author Bruce Pascoe believes so, and believes we should be telling the successes and achievements of Aboriginal history.
Bruce is a Bunurong man born in the Melbourne suburb of Richmond. He is a member of the Wathaurong Aboriginal Co-operative of southern Victoria and has been the director of the Australian Studies Project for the Commonwealth Schools Commission. Bruce has had a varied career as a teacher, farmer, fisherman, barman, fencing contractor, lecturer, Aboriginal language researcher, archaeological site worker and editor. His book Fog a Dox (published by Magabala Books in 2012), won the Young Adult category of the 2013 Prime Minister's Literary Awards.
