The armed struggle

If you think Australian history is boring, its because you are being taught from sources that sanitise Australian history, ignoring the numerous wars and guerrilla insurgencies fought by our First nations people. Accounts of these wars go contrary to the white narrative that portrays history as a settlement and not an invasion that murdered and displaced our Indigenous people. These wars, ranged from as short as a few weeks to decade long wars. Some of the wars  included the:

Hawksebury and Neapean Wars

Pemulwuy’s War

Tedbury’s War

Bathurst War

Black War

These accounts also fail to tell the story of brave Indigenous warriors like Pemulwuy (of the Bidjigal Clan) who against insurmountable odds, waged an insurrection against White invaders, defeating the British army through speed, avoided capture for over 12 years as well surviving two near fatal attempts on his life (including one where his skull was cracked open). Nor does it mention that his son continued the war after his death, proving a constant thorn for the White invaders.

It is important we paint a more complex and truthful narrative of Australia. One that recognises that convicts and squatters were not stepping into an uninhabited world, but rather a complex world, where various tribes had lived there for 40,000+ years, resisted White invasion, fought tooth and nail for their land, and to this day struggle for recognition.
