Welcome to the Australian South Sea Islander Blog
August 2013 marks the 150th anniversary of the first arrival of Australian South Sea Islanders transported to Queensland. To commemorate this significant event this blog has been created to discuss, share and celebrate Australian South Sea Islander heritage, culture and stories. Over the following weeks, the Queensland Museum, State Library of Queensland, Queensland Art Gallery and the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art will all be contributing stories. We also welcome and encourage your input, either as a guest blogger or by adding your comments under each blog article.
The Australian South Sea Islander Blog is coordinated by Imelda Miller from the Queensland Museum. If you would like to contribute to the blog Imelda can be contacted via email - email@example.com
