Abstract

The histories that inform the theme 'From Segregation to Assimilation' are the histories of European intervention in Aboriginal peoples' lives since invasion. As such the theme reflects or parallels all Aboriginal histories from the late eighteenth century to the late twentieth century. This comprises a complex history of different peoples, jurisdictions, events and responses.
The intention of the project is to find patterns that reflect common experiences and stories. However, the complexity of the histories and the particularities of certain events first demands a comprehensive understanding of the events, chronology and people effecting Aboriginal people throughout this period. This section therefore attempts to provide a brief history of the events and chronologies relating to colonial and state administration of Aboriginal people.
