Aborigines and aboriginal women's identities in Australia : the damaging and painful meeting with others

Abstract : The experience of the colonization of Australia from 1770 had and still has tremendous consequences on the Aborigines' identities and more particularly on Aboriginal women. Through successive government policies, the culture and traditions of Indigenous communities were destroyed, children disappeared and families were torn apart. The deep trauma resulting from these years of ignorance and depreciation represents an open wound for every Aborigine although a rise in consideration and special efforts have been undertaken by the Australian Government since the 1960's. Nowadays, the Aborigines continue to struggle through associations, literature and art to give a new meaning to life and to bring a message of hope for the future generations
