“Who Wins The War, Writes The History” is about my frustration with the biased historical rhetoric that is widely accepted in Australian universities, high schools, art galleries and other places of cultural significance. Bla(c)k history is not widely known, celebrated, or acknowledged. It has been denied, replaced and retold instead, by the colonial powers at hand.
History is contingent on the “victors” who retell the narratives that inform a nation’s identity. Our history is whitewashed so that our very recent history of genocide, ecocide, disposition and racial injustice is downplayed and virtually unknown. I have spent my whole life learning white history, so I want white Australians to do their part to learn mine. Because without history we have no context in which to be understood today as young Aboriginal people. All you are is your history.
