In the longer term it helped to pave the way for the 1967 referendum to include Aboriginal people in the Australian constitution which in turn gave greater legal and political rights to Aboriginal people.

What were the responses to the 1838 Myall Creek Massacre?

(0)
Much has been written of the 1838 Myall Creek Massacre of Kamilaroi people by European settlers in New England NSW. But how did people at the time respond to news of the event? What are the responses now? How have people responded when they learned that their ancestors were perpetrators or victims of the event? This source-based homework task supports student understanding of the outcomes in the NSW History syllabus for the Australian Curriculum Stage 5 Depth Study 1: The Making of the Modern World The Industrial Revolution/Australia in the 1800s Students examine a range of primary and secondary, visual and written resources to discover the background to the Myall Creek Massacre, the event, and the aftermath. The activity concludes with an examination of responses to the event today.

Massacre at Myall Creek - Australia on Trial

(0)
This worksheet accompanies the ABC-TV documentary Australia on Trial - The Myall Creek Massacre (2011). It covers the events around the 1836 massacre and the two court cases in 1837/38 culminating in the verdict when in the hanging of 7 convict stockmen. The agendas of the squatters, Governor Gipps and urban middle-class society are examined. It is probably beyond the scope of the video to investigate the perspectives of the Kamilaroi people and that of the convicts. Neither had power in the 1830s to give their view of the crimes.
