Abstract: The descendants of Aboriginal people in Queensland during the colonisation process have access to an enormous store of documents regarding their ancestors. This store is accessible through application to the state and is often used in the procurement of land rights, state recognition and personal history narratives. The process of receiving mass information about the past is fraught with power dynamics and emotional distress. This paper explores how this process can be understood critically and how Aboriginal people are manipulating the system to reassert narratives of healing from a traumatic past.
