1920’S PHOTO METHODIST MISSION GOULBURN IS NT SEMI-TRIBAL ABORIGINES/CAMPFIRE W29

DESCRIPTION:

We have on offer an original 1920’s photo Methodist Mission NT showing semi-tribal Aborigines around a campfire most likely at the Goulburn Island Mission. These Aborigines would have been the first to come to the mission. While coming to live on missions contributed to loss of tribal culturemissions provided protection to Aborigines from the many of thedetrimental aspects of the white man’s life style that had anegative impact on Aborigines. While saying this however it needs to beborn in mind that some Aboriginal missions such as Hermannsburg Lutheran Mission in the NT, the Killalpaninna Lutheran Mission and the Ernabella Presbyterian Mission both in SA recognised the value of Aboriginal culture to the extent that they preserved the Aboriginal languages of the region and encouraged traditionalhandicrafts such as mat making. The Methodist Church established a mission on Goulburn Island in 1916 which was handed over to Aboriginal control in 1973. Such images are very scarce
