Our Story: Six Sisters of the Stolen Generation

McMullan, J. (2012) Our Story: Six Sisters of the Stolen Generation. [Documentary] [Creative Output]


Our Story is an artefact of cross-cultural collaborative visual ethnography. It explores methods of Australian indigenous storytelling through the medium of the wadjela (white person). It expands on the work of Iseke and Moore (2011), who collaborate with Canadian indigenous community groups to provide them opportunities through which to control their stories and express their understandings of themselves to a broader audience.
