Aboriginal MelbourneABORIGINAL MELBOURNE: THE LOST LAND OF THE KULIN PEOPLE

By Gary Presland

At the time of European settlement on the Yarra River, the region was occupied by a number of Koorie clans. These groups, members of a confederacy called Kulin, had adapted their way of life to the rich environments their spiritual ancestors had created. This book details that way of life and looks also at the rapid and massive changes at the European invasion brought, both to the landscapes and to Koorie culture. Highly recommended for assisting with understanding traditional Aboriginal life in this area.
