My Country All Gone – The Invasion of Wadawurrung Country 1800-1870 by Fred Cahir
A fantastic new release Indigenous history book looking at the Wadawurrung tribe, right here in Aireys Inlet and the Surfcoast Bellarine.
Associate Professor Fred Cahir, from Federation University, using the invader’s own words taken from diaries, official records and letters, presents a challenging history between the interactions and relations with the First Nation’s people in the Geelong and Ballarat region.
My Country All Gone is a culmination of 30 years archival research that chronicles the three waves of invasion in the region from 1800 to1870 by the ngamadjidj– the white strangers from the sea.
