William Buckley podcast

I have already posted a book review on a tome that imaginatively chronicled William Buckley’s life. In class, we’ve done some lessons on Pemulwuy and Bennelong, and their reactions to white settlement. I wanted to show them that there was a European who had an extremely positive experience of the indigenous people.

Have a listen here.


Podcast script is here. If you want some more information on Buckley go here.

    That haunting painting of Buckley is exhibited in the State Library of Victoria (Cowen Gallery) – just in case you didn’t know.

    Thanks CNWB for the info. It is haunting, as if he’s remembering what a different life he has had. It’s made ironic by the ‘strait-laced’ clothing he’s wearing, such a contrast to his life with the Wathaurong.
