Deepen the Conversation: Transforming Tindale


Explore the history and legacy of Norman Tindale’s anthropological expedition to study Aboriginal Australians in Queensland and Northern NSW communities, and the importance that this collection of records has for family and descendants. Collected under exploitative conditions, years later these records are both a source of contention surrounding the treatment of Aboriginal Australians and a valuable resource for relatives.

Complementing this panel discussion, Vernon Ah Kee will talk on his desire to imbue the Tindale images of his family with new meaning by producing beautiful portraits that capture the unique personalities behind the scientific photographs.
