Brisbane Dreaming: Once green and clean
Re-enactment of an Aboriginal man moving with spear in hand is intercut with historical photographs of Aboriginal men.
Voice-over narration tells us about the geological impact upon the formation of the Brisbane and Moreton Bay regions. The rising of the waters after the last ice age meant that many Indigenous sites disappeared beneath the ocean. This clip introduces us to the Yaggera or Jagera people.
Notes by Beth Taylor
This clip describes Brisbane as being forged by changes in weather patterns, and the eventual changeover of inhabitance. Brisbane Dreaming effectively allows us to glimpse Brisbane as an area with an incredible history, seeing beyond the façade of modern technology and architecture.
