Description

Violent abductions, a slave trade, brokered marriages, bi-cultural families, and a colony at Rapid Bay hosted peacefully for months by the ‘Cape Jervis tribe’. This book studies the local geography, languages and territories of these people and their neighbours the ‘Encounter Bay tribe’ at first contact; their changing relationships with Kangaroo Islanders; and their contributions to European exploration and the beginning of settlement in 1836 as guides, interpreters and cultural mediators.
