A Dumping Ground illustrates an Aboriginal reserve's evolution under government practise, and explores the dynamics of cultural resilience through the generations. Cherbourg Settlement was a home to many, but it was never the haven the Queensland government intended. Variously described as bold, well meaning and misguided, Cherbourg was a social experiment in institutional control that was to impact on the lives of thousands of Aboriginal families. In this revealing, first-ever publication on Cherbourg Settlement's history, Thom Blake adds the vital dimension of interviews with former residents, supported by maps, archival documents and letters.
