the names of places



the names of places presents a research-based mapping of Aboriginal massacre sites across the country. A significant aspect of the project is an invitation to the Australian public to contribute their own knowledge of any such massacres, to be incorporated into a database and website that form part of the evolving project. the names of places creates a space where anybody can contribute their knowledge of massacres of Aboriginal people in Australia, so that the places, names and details of such events can become part of our collective consciousness.
