History has come to represent more than just the account of the past. It helps us define who we are, and what we represent. In the 1960s a group of Australian aboriginals went on a strike, demanding not just living conditions, but their recognition as the original custodians of the land. Their strike would force a ‘reversal of history’, and so send Australia on a path to amend how it saw and defined itself. The path continues to be uneasily trodden to this day.
