Cabbage Tree Island and other massacres on the NSW North Coast

ABC North Coast NSW 23 October 2014:

Lois Cook takes on a history detective mission to track down people and documents to find out if her family's oral history is supported by other accounts from the 19th century. With the help of the staff of Ballina Library she discovers commentary by settlers and historians who were compelled to record the brutality against the local Indigenous people.
This video was created by Lois Cook and her family in collaboration with ABC Open in a series of video production workshops.
It is a special project for ABC North Coast's initiative UNTOLD, culminating in a live broadcast from Cabbage Tree Island on October 28 2014.
