Oral histories to shape Stolen Generations school curriculum

University of Adelaide researchers are working with the Ngarrindjeri people from Murray Bridge in South Australia to record the experiences of those forcibly removed from their families under previous state and federal welfare laws.

Those who were removed under these policies are known as the Stolen Generations. The project, which will be based at Murray Bridge High School, aims to help South Australian students understand the impact these removals had on families across the state.

It will be led by historian Katie Barclay and will involve collecting oral histories and developing a curriculum and educational resources for schools.
