Description

The project arises from the Commonwealth Government response to the recommendations of Bringing them home: The report of the National Inquiry into the Separation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children from their Families, which reported to the Federal Parliament in 1998. The aim of the project was to record the diverse experiences of people directly affected by the separation of Indigenous children and shed light on the legislative and policy mechanism which shaped the policies of forced removal.

There are 340 interviews in the collection, conducted primarily with families and children with direct experience of forced removal, as well as with those who worked with the children in institutions, who cared for them and were involved with policy, administration and implementation.

Access conditions to the 736 tapes vary. Summaries and transcripts are generally available
