The History of Aboriginal Sydney (HoAS) site is the output of a five year project (2008-2012) supported by the Australian Research Council and the Department of History at the University of Sydney. It was first published in 2014 by the University of Sydney. The initial web architect was Dr Suzana Sukovic at the University of Technology Sydney, and the site was first hosted by the Digital Resources section of that University's Library. HOAS is now hosted at Western Sydney University. It is intended as a means to repatriate histories to the first peoples of Sydney. The site is also intended as an information resource for use in schools and higher education institutuions by Aboriginal families and organisations, and by non-Indigenous people of sydney who wish to learn more about the lives, histories and achievements of Australia's first peoples. To browse through a collection, please touch-tap / click on a tree branch to enter the site.



Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are warned that this site may contain images and voices of deceased persons, which may cause distress.
