History and Heroes Journey
Discover Australia’s Indigenous heroes and watch historic films.
A collection of short films and a photographic exhibition explore the diverse history of Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from the shattering impact of the Stolen Generation to our inspiring Indigenous heroes, both past and present.
Be uplifted by the stories of Australia’s best known Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people – the athletes, politicians, activists, business people, leaders and creative people who have inspired us for many generations.
Among the films are historical images of the Djabugay people who were forced from their nomadic life as the people of the tropical rainforest to a mission near Kuranda. At the Seventh-day Adventist Mona Mona Mission, they built a new life for themselves only to have it stripped away again when the mission closed.
