Virtual Sourcebook for Aboriginal Studies in the Hunter Region
InformationThis site was originally created to assist the Awaba project, a collaborative venture by the University of Newcastle's School of Liberal Arts and the Wollotuka School of Aboriginal Studies. The original brief was to digitise the works of Reverend Lancelot Threlkeld, but we continued to identify materials from the collections relating to Aboriginal people throughout Newcastle and the wider Hunter Region. Due to the assistance of scholars and members of the local indigenous and non indigenous community the site grew rapidly to include many hundreds of sources. We hope that this will lead to a better understanding and respect of the richness and beauty of the Aboriginal view.
