Last edited 8th July 2015

To a room full of impressionable young minds, her words hit my ears with unsettling confidence. ‘Australia was discovered by Captain Cook, and on 26th January 1788 Australia was established as a nation.’ There was, of course, a problem with this story. At best, it was a thin story, a partisan and discriminatory representation of our history, at worst it was intentional deception. A lie. And a lie that changed everything.
