In Australia in 1909, in the New South Wales, the Aborigines Protection Board planned to break up Aboriginal communities by forcibly removing children and hiring them out as servants to white employers. The title of this powerful documentary comes from the wages that were to be paid to the children. Many never saw that "lousy little sixpence". In the mid-1930s, the Aboriginal people began to organise and to fight the Aborigines Protection Board. Through old newsreels, archive film, photographs and interviews with the Elders, the film weaves a moving account of their lives and their struggle

Haida monumental art : villages of the Queen Charlotte Islands by George F MacDonald( Book )

5 editions published between 1983 and 1995 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Haida of the Queen Charlotte Islands in British Columbia constructed some of the most magnificent houses and erected some of the most beautifully carved totem poles on the Northwest Coast. During the last quarter of the nineteenth century, images of the Haida's immense cedar houses and soaring totem poles were captured, first on glass plates and later on film, by photographers who travelled to then-remote villages such as Masset and Skidegate to marvel at, and record, what they saw there." "Haida Monumental Art, initially published as a limited edition hardcover and finally available in paperback, includes a large number of these remarkable photographs, selected from a collection of over 10,000 original prints and photographic plates. They depict the Haida villages at the height of their glory and record their tragic deterioration only a few decades later. As well, this edition contains the complete text from the first edition, including site plans and detailed descriptions of fifteen major villages and several smaller sites, which are catalogued by house and pole." "By combining archaeology and ethnohistory, George MacDonald presents an integrated framework for understanding the physical structure of a Haida village. He explains how the houses and poles are part of a fascinating web of myth, family history, and Haida cosmology, which provides a unique insight into Haida culture."--Jacket
