New Poster on William Buckley the Convict

Thursday, December 4th, 2014

A Night at the Theatre with Murrangurk

I have just created a new poster on William Buckley, the escaped convict who spent 32 years from 1803 to 1835 with the Kulin people. Previous information about Buckley has often been misleading or just plain wrong. This poster instead relies on Aboriginal oral history to explain his role and experiences over the thirty-two year period with the Kulin people around Port Phillip Bay. It was of Buckley's continuous warnings that white men would inevitably come and take their land and that armed resistance would bring genocide, that the Kulin decided to never kill a white man.
