Panel discussion “Kerosene Tins & Love Hearts” – Stolen Generations photo exhibition

This weekend just gone, the Dumbartung Aboriginal Corportation, with the support of the CFMEU, presented a panel discussion and photo exhibition “Kerosene Tins and Love Hearts” on the past policies and legislation of the 1905 Native Welfare Act primarily focused on the Stolen Generations and the ingrained trauma associated with the after effects of these policies. The photographic exhibition was a project that came about when Robert and Selina Eggington from Dumbartung took students from Clontarf Aboriginal College on a tour of the missions through the south west, documenting the old sites with photographs and telling them the stories of kids who were taken from their parents under the 1905 Native Welfare Act.
