Museum Tour: Truth and Treaty

Explore the complex story of truth and treaty in Australian history in this interactive tour led by First Nations staff

Delve into the Australian history you were never taught at school, but should have been.

Exploring the theme of 2019 NAIDOC Week – Voice, Treaty, Truth – Wiradjuri archivist Nathan Mudyi Sentence will lead visitors on a tour of the First Australians Galleries, offering explanations, commentary, hidden stories and anecdotes about the truths behind the popular myths, and the argument for a treaty.

Expect active discussion and ask as many questions as you like!

Topics of the tour include:

  • The origins of the terra nullius narrative
  • The role museums have played in protecting and debunking pervasive colonialist myths
  • The evidence held in the AM collection that First Nations people managed the land and were not solely hunters and gatherers
  • Gender balance in pre-invasion First Nations communities
  • The Freedom Rides, the Stolen Generations and post-Stolen Generations history
  • How the absence of a treaty in Australia suggests an ongoing denial of the occupation and dispossession of First Nations people
