Blood on the Wattle: Massacres and Maltreatment of Aboriginal Australians Since 1788, Third Edition
Dispatch: 1 day
"I was given [Blood on the Wattle] by a cousin of mine who works for Aboriginal Affairs and I was in a daze. I mean, I was just reading page after page after page of massacres and really the only thing that I knew of my Aboriginality was that I belonged to the Wiradjuri tribe. Then I came to the page where most of the Wiradjuri tribe were wiped out..." - Evonne Cawley, The Midday Show, 18 May 1992.
"Blood on the Wattle...dares any Australian who admits no responsibility for the plight of the Aboriginal people today to remain defiant in the face of the overwhelming agony." - The West Australian, 22 October 1988.
"All they seem'd to want was for us to be gone." - Captain James Cook, 29 April 1770.
