Black Diggers and Frontier Wars

Honest History has a number of resources on these related issues. This article provoked by NAIDOC Week 2014 includes links to a number of articles discussing both the Frontier Wars and the rediscovered role of Indigenous servicemen. Peter Stanley gave a speech during NAIDOC Week, canvassing these issues, Paul Daley and Alan Stephens wrote thoughtful articles, while the issues were already bubbling in a number of other places. Meanwhile, Henry Reynolds’s book on the Frontier Wars was still receiving a lot of attention almost after a year after it was first published. Meanwhile also, Melbourne planned a memorial to Indigenous warriors.
