Description VICTORIA, 1881: the men and women of the 'Coranderrk Aboriginal Station' take on the Board for the Protection of Aborigines in a fight for justice, dignity and self-determination. For the first time, we bring back to life Coranderrk's voices - both black and white - through readings of their official testimonies before the Government's 1881 Inquiry into Coranderrk.
