Celebrating Aboriginal Culture in Gertrude Street
In the time before boutique salons and soy lattes, Fitzroy was an altogether different place. For 40,000 odd years before European settlement, the area now known as Fitzroy belonged to the Wurundjeri. From the 1920s onwards, Fitzroy became the thriving hub of Aboriginal Victoria – the known meeting place for linking in with family, the rallying point for political activism and the birthplace for many important Aboriginal organisations. To find out more about the fascinating history of Aboriginal Fitzroy (photos, videos, radio docos and more), and to share your thoughts about how Aboriginal culture can be celebrated in the street, click on the following Facebook link.
