Power and the Passion: Our Ancestors Return Home

By Shannon Faulkhead and Uncle Jim Berg

Power and the Passion highlights the urgent need for the repatriation of First Peoples Ancestral Remains, and for the return of all precious cultural material to its rightful owners.

With the 1985 landmark reburial of Ancestral Remains in Melbourne’s Kings Domain Garden as a guiding point, Shannon Faulkhead, Uncle Jim Berg and a range of contributors provide an incisive perspective on the historically complex relationships many of Australia’s cultural institutions have with the repatriation of First Peoples’ Ancestors.

This text provides personal, in-depth perspectives on the ongoing battle for self-determination in caring for Ancestors, and is essential reading for anyone seeking information on decolonising Australia.
