What is colonialism and how are we haunted here?
“Gippsland” history through cognitive mapping workshops. Settlers are invited to participate in workshops exploring the history of white invasion here in "Gippsland". Cognitive mapping will be the tool we use to express and explore the knowledge we each already hold about local history and we will explore how we carry this knowledge in our everyday lives.
These workshops will provide you with a clear understanding of how European people occupied these lands, and how this invasion relates to the legal definition of genocide. You will also learn what different kinds of sources of information about this past remain in the present and how you can find them yourself.
