The 'Bringing them home oral history project' arose 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. The aim of the project was to record the diverse experiences of people directly affected by Indigenous child separation and to shed light on the policy and legislative frameworks that supported the separations.
The interviews include recollections from Indigenous people, missionaries, police and administrators who were 'involved in or affected by' the removal of Indigenous children from their families.
Access conditions vary.
