Please be aware that this submission contains sensitive material.


Sally Gibson is descended from several colonists. In this submission, she recounts the history of how an Aboriginal man named ‘Murray’ was killed by William Kinley at Bushy Creek in 1851. She describes the way in which she is trying to make amends for the crime and believes strongly that descendants of colonists have an obligation to explore their first contact stories and connections to the British invasion of Australia.
